When you consider how you'd flee after a crime, it's unlikely that a Muni bus would top your list. After all, it's slow, unreliable, and never there when you need it. And yet, that's what two shooting suspects did Monday — and it worked.
According to the San Francisco Police Department, the two shooting suspects got into an argument with a 26-year-old man sitting in a van parked on the 700 block of Phelps Street, which is near Hudson Street and just a block from Third Street.
When the man stepped out of the van to continue the argument, the suspects (described by police only as males aged "about" 19 years) "shot him with a semi-automatic handgun."
The two men ran from the scene, then boarded a passing Muni bus, police say.
The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where he was treated for a gunshot wound to his arm. He';s expected to survive.
According to police, no arrests have been made in the case. A call to SFPD to see if Muni surveillance footage of the suspects is available was not returned at publication time.
