SAN FRANCISCO —
A woman was hospitalized after she was shot four times and crashed her car trying to escape gunmen who were firing at her car at close range in San Francisco’s Western Addition early Saturday morning.
The 30-year-old woman said she was trying to park on Ellis and Pierce around 4 a.m. when two gunmen walked up to her vehicle and began firing, according to a San Francisco Police detective on scene.
The woman said she could hear the shooting and felt the bullets hitting her, so she attempted to drive off but crashed her car soon afterward, flipping it onto its hood.
She was hit four times, according to the detective. She was reported to be in stable condition and undergoing surgery later that morning.
Meanwhile, investigators spent the morning combing through the scene, marking shell casings and bullet holes.
Based on where all those shell casings were found, investigators said that it seems that the shooters walked right up to the car and opened fire.
Police said they did not believe the attack was random, saying they suspected that the woman had some sort of connection to the people who shot her.
One positive thing about the crime scene was that there were a number of surveillance cameras in the area, police said.
Investigators had hope that morning that video could provide a picture of the gunmen or a getaway car, or some sort of clue in the investigation.
Meanwhile, the intersection of Ellis and Pierce was expected to be closed for hours Saturday morning.
