Police have arrested two teens in connection with a shooting in  San Francisco's Western Addition neighborhood Friday night that left an  11-year-old girl with life-threatening injuries, a police spokesman said.

    The girl was hit in the chest when shots fired at about 11:15 p.m.  in the 1100 block of Laguna Street penetrated the walls of her apartment  building, police said.     It appears a group of teenaged men had been arguing outside, and  one began shooting, Officer Albie Esparza said.
    Three 18- and 19-year-old men were detained, and two were  eventually arrested, Esparza said. The third was released.
    Police have not identified the suspects.
    Esparza did not know what the argument was about, but he said the  shooting is being investigated as gang related.
    The girl, who was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, was  still in life-threatening condition as of about noon today, Esparza said.
    Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police  at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411.
