A man was hospitalized Monday afternoon with life-threatening gunshot injuries after a shooting at the California Department of Corrections building in San Francisco’s Mission district, police said.
Police were called at 3:52 p.m. Monday to the CDC building at 1727 Mission St., where they found the victim, said SFPD Sgt. Michael Andraychak. The man was then taken to a local hospital for treatment, he said. No CDC personnel were involved in the shooting or any preceding dispute, Andraychak said.
In the shooting’s immediate aftermath, San Francisco Department of Emergency Management officials had asked the public to avoid then surrounding neighborhood. And Monday night, police continue to investigate, Andraychak said.
