A 18-year-old man is in critical condition after he was shot yesterday morning while driving through the Ingleside neighborhood.

Police say the victim and another man were driving along San Jose and Geneva avenues at about 11:17 a.m. yesterday when two men in another vehicle drove up next to them and one of them began shooting. The gunman shot the victim in the hip and the back before driving off, police said.

The victim -- a 18-year-old man -- was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Police could not yet provide more details, but the shooting was the latest in a string of gun violence in the city -- in particular the Mission District.

Three people were killed in the last week and one suffered minor injuries due to gun violence. On Monday, 45-year-old Dwayne Spruell

was shot to death on the corner of Guerrero and Camp streets -- a

well-known area for drug use. Media reports say the Spruell had just

been released from prison on drug charges and was attending Narcotics

Anonymous meetings when he was killed.

Last week, 29-year-old Edson Lacayo, an identified gang member, who was found shot to death on Hampshire Street. Earlier that day, Gaspar Puch-Tzek,

who was a local cook, was shot in the head while taking a smoke break

outside his place of work on 19th and San Carlos streets. He was

mistaken for a gang member, which police say he was not.
