    A shooting in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood sent  two men to the hospital early Sunday morning, including a bystander who was  unintentionally struck by the gunfire, police said.

        Police responded to the 400 block of Minna Street at about 2:15  a.m. after receiving reports of a shooting, San Francisco police Officer  Albie Esparza said.     It appears that one of the victims, a man in his 40s, was walking  when he was approached by a gunman who shot him multiple times in the upper  and lower body, Esparza said.
        A passerby, a man in his 20s, was unintentionally struck in his  chest during the gunfire, he said.
        Both men were taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be  treated for injuries that are not believed to be life threatening.
        The shooter is described as a black man in his 20s, but Esparza  said police have not released any further information.
