A man was shot in San Francisco’s Castro district Tuesday night, according to police.

At 7:57 p.m., the city’s Shot Spotter system detected at least one gunshot near Hancock and Church streets. Witnesses saw a vehicle parked on the street, “heard a verbal commotion, and hid,” police spokeswoman Officer Giselle Talkoff said in a summary. When the witnesses looked again, the vehicle wasn’t there.

The 20-year-old victim, whose gunshot wound was considered non-life threatening, was taken to a hospital.

No suspect description was available.
