Man Critically Wounded After Tenderloin Shooting, Collision

A man was shot this morning in the Tenderloin, causing a collision.

According to SFPD spokesperson Officer Giselle Linnane, police responded to the scene at the 700 block of O'Farrell Street, near Cyril Magnin, after shots activated the ShotSpotter detection system. 

"At about 6:00-6:15am, we were woken up by three gunshots on the 700 block of O'Farrell Street, followed by what sounded like a car peeling away," an anonymous tipster told us.

The tipster also said that there were three visible shell casings on the ground, and noted that "the street was closed off at Mason due to a fairly violent-looking car crash." 

Linnane told us that it did appear that the man who was shot was inside the car at the time, but could not confirm as police are still investigating the incident. 

According to the Chronicle, a woman was driving the car and witnesses said that she pleaded for help for her husband—reportedly the man who was shot—after the collision occurred. 

The collision and the investigation also closed down the street for several hours, causing Muni delays in the area. 

The victim was critically injured in the incident and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, reported the Chronicle.

No suspect information is available at this time, and no arrests have been made.

Anyone who has information about this incident is encouraged to contact SFPD via the department's anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444, or text TIP411 with "SFPD" at the start of the message.
