Over at Bonifacio and Mabini on Sunday, a couple of blocks away from the Oracle OpenWorld convention now in progress, a young man was shot during a violent robbery.

"The 26-year-old victim was found around 2:05 a.m., reports CBS SF. "A suspect approached the victim with a gun and demanded his property. After the victim handed over his cellphone and wallet, the suspect shot him twice in the leg."

The suspect then fled in a "silver vehicle." The victim was treated at a nearby hospital for injuries.

This most recent shooting, of course, is nothing new in the area. Crime, assaults, muggings, public intoxication, fighting, harassing, and other incidents are the norm, not the exception, in the area (especially on weekend nights).

Anyone with information on Sunday morning's shooting should call the SFPD anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444 or via text message to TIP411 with "SFPD" in the message.
