Two suspects have been detained in connection with a shooting that injured one person in San Francisco's Mission District Monday morning, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza.

The victim was standing on the sidewalk in front of a taqueria in the 2100 block of Mission Street at about 7:20 a.m. when two suspects pulled up in a car and someone inside shot him in the back, Esparza said.

The victim was transported to a hospital and is expected to survive, Esparza said.

Information about the two suspects was not immediately available and the case is still under investigation, Esparza said.

The city's gang task force is working with investigators to see if the shooting might have been gang-related, Esparza said.
