SAN FRANCISCO — A woman with a gun was shot and wounded Friday night after a home invasion in a neighborhood that’s been plagued by violence in recent years.
The woman was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive, San Francisco police Capt. David Avila said.
Police say the woman, a 28-year-old woman, was in her home in the 6800 block of North Mason Street when an unknown person knocked on the door and asked if she had a gun.
The victim, who lives at the home, answered the door, and the woman was able to get out of the house with her weapon and pepper sprays, Avilas said.
The man then got in the home and tried to rob the woman.
The suspect took off with the gun, Alevas said, and a short time later a woman who was sitting on the porch was shot in the hand and suffered a graze wound to the arm.
The police department was investigating the incident.
No one was in custody as of Friday night.
