San Francisco police are investigating an overnight shooting outside a restaurant in an apparent case of mistaken identity.

Just after midnight police were called to the Hog & Rocks restaurant at 19th and San Carlos streets in the Mission District. They found a 22-year-old man shot in the head in front of the business. He's now hospitalized in intensive care.

Police believe gang members shot him thinking that he was a member of a rival gang, instead investigators say he is likely a restaurant employee.
