San Francisco police said officers are searching for a suspect who shot and injured an Amazon delivery driver during a robbery attempt Saturday in the Potrero Hill neighborhood.

Officers responded to reports of gunshots near Mariposa Street and Pennsylvania Avenue shortly after 6 p.m., police said.

Police said officers found a man suffering from non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. He told them that his attacker had tried to rob him before fleeing. The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment, authorities said, but an update on his condition was unavailable early Sunday. Investigators have made any arrests.

On Monday, Amazon confirmed the victim had been working as a delivery driver for the company.

“We’re working closely with law enforcement as they investigate this crime and are focused on supporting our team during this difficult time,” Amazon spokesperson Montana MacLachlan said.

According to police incident data gathered by The Standard, the number of robberies in the Potrero Hill neighborhood has increased by 4% in the 12 months before July 14 from 26 robberies to 27. Four robbery incidents were reported within the last 30 days from July 14.
