Six people were sent to the hospital after police responded to two separate shootings Tuesday evening.

One shooting in the Mission District was reported at 7:06 p.m. around 25th Street and Treat Avenue after a suspect chased and shot at the victims, San Francisco Police say. All four, men ages 60, 56, 44 and 39 were hit and sent to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Details on a second suspect who drove the two are unknown but the shooter is believed to be 18 to 25 years old.

The second shooting happened hours later at 9:51 p.m. on the 1200 block of Buchanan Street, near Turk Street. The suspect reportedly ran and shot at two victims, males ages 18 and 16, before fleeing on foot. 

Both teenage victims were also transported to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. No arrests have been made in either case as of Wednesday.
