A mid-afternoon drive-by shooting on Sunday in Glen Park left a man with non-life-threatening injuries and Diamond street blocked for several hours as police investigated.
Officers arrived on the scene and found an adult male victim suffering from a gunshot wound, police said. The victim was transported to a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. No further information about the victim’s condition was available.
The incident began at 2:58 pm on Dec. 6 when Ingleside Station police officers responded to Diamond and Sussex Streets for multiple ShotSpotter gunshot detection system activations, a San Francisco Police public relations told the Glen Park News via email.
Randy Wonzer was out for a walk with his wife on Castro at the other end of Sussex when they heard what they thought might be the sound of gunfire Sunday afternoon.
They were debating if it had been fireworks or gunfire when “we saw the grey Infiniti scream by us on Castro street at 60mph or so, then turn right on Chenery toward Diamond,” he told the Glen Park News.
He said a neighbor saw the Infiniti jockey aggressively around a white car coming the opposite direction up Sussex , a street that is too narrow for two cars to pass side-by-side
Between ten and 15 shots were fired, people who heard the shooting said.
A Sussex street resident interviewed by the News said he heard five shots in rapid succession and then another burst. “It was a while, maybe ten minutes, before I heard an ambulance,” said the man, who asked not to be named.
According to the website Citizen, police were searching for a four-door grey Infinity in connection with the event.
Reports on NextDoor said that a weapon was left at the corner of Diamond and Sussex. One person drove away in that gray Infiniti, came back a few minutes later followed by police. They stopped at the intersection and appeared hurt. Police provided immediate assistance, the report said.
Multiple police cars were on the scene Sunday and Diamond street was blocked off between Surrey and Sussex for several hours.
