A shooting in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood sent two victims to a hospital only hours after a separate shooting claimed one victim's life and injured another. 

At 10:38 p.m. Saturday, first responders received word of a possible shooting near Turk and Hyde streets, a San Francisco Fire Department spokesperson said.

After arriving at the intersection and finding two victims suffering from gunshot wounds, police called for ambulances, which took the victims to a hospital for treatment.

Police said Sunday that no arrests have been made. A spokesperson did not share suspect description, details on where a suspect or suspects may have fled to or an update on the victims' conditions.

The Saturday night shooting came on the heels of an early morning shooting at Hyde Street and Golden Gate Avenue that killed one person.

Another fatal shooting occurred at Hyde and Golden Gate in July. As of Nov. 19, San Francisco had recorded 49 homicides for the year, one more than at this point in 2022.

The department's Homicide Detail has taken over the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact SFPD at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD.
