SAN FRANCISCO - A man was shot in San Francisco's Lafayette Park early this morning after another man asked to use his cellphone and then tried to rob him, police said.
The 20-year-old man was walking in the park in the city's Pacific Heights neighborhood around 2:15 a.m. when he was approached by another man in his mid 20s who asked to use his phone.
