Man Injured In Bayview Drive-By Shooting

A man was injured in a drive-by shooting in the Bayview district last night, police have reported.

The attack occurred around 10:50pm on the 1300 block of Palou Avenue when a 36-year-old man who was walking was approached by an unknown suspect driving a vehicle.

The driver fired a gun through the car’s window, striking the victim, who was transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The incident took place about a block away from a July 2017 shooting that claimed the life of 18-year-old Marshawn Byrd.
