A 25-year-old man was critically wounded by gunfire yesterday afternoon in the Tenderloin at 5pm near the convergence of Mason, Market and Turk streets.

An officer in the area heard gunshots and responded to the scene, where he found the victim, who was taken to a hospital with life-threatening wounds. At this time, there’s no word on his condition and his name has not been released.

SFWeekly reported that witnesses said the 26-year-old shooter, who was riding a bicycle, opened fire on the victim after an argument.

Several police cars responded to the scene, and the suspect was detained minutes after the shooting. Police recovered a weapon at the scene.
