A man suffering from life-threatening gunshot wounds was found just steps from San Francisco General Hospital on Thursday night, and now police are trying to figure out where the shooting took place.
According to an alert sent to media by SFPD spokesperson Officer Gordon Shyy at 9:06 p.m. Thursday, police were called to SF General at 8:30 that night "regarding a walk in shooting victim."
Officers found the victim, a man in his 20s, at 23rd and Utah Streets, which is at the edge of the hospital's campus.
As of Thursday night, Shyy wrote, "he is in life threatening condition with multiple gun shot wounds to the upper body." There was not an update regarding the man's condition at publication time.
Though no gunshots were reported near the hospital, Shyy says that police had received reports of shots fired on Ellsworth Street between Odgen and Tompkins Avenues in Bernal Heights at "around the time frame the victim was located."
However, Shyy hastens to add that police aren't certain that the two incidents are connected.
As always, if you have any information that might aid the investigation of this shooting, please do give SFPD a call at 415- 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the start of the message.
