Police in San Francisco are continuing to investigate a shooting that left a teenager in serious condition, a dispatcher said today.

The shooting Monday night took place after an attempted robbery in the Forest Hill neighborhood, according to a dispatcher.

The victim and other teenagers were sitting on steps near the intersection of Dewey Boulevard and Pacheco Street when they were approached by another group of teenagers around 10:30 p.m.

A Hispanic male who had a silver revolver demanded money and took the wallet from one person and the cell phone from another teen, who he then pistol whipped, according to police.

Words were exchanged and the suspect then shot the teenager whose wallet he took in the stomach. The teen was taken to San Francisco General Hospital.
