A man was shot in the arm on seedy Sixth Street early this morning, police said, but not by a needle.

The victim said he didn’t know the shooter. A suspect description was not immediately available.

He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, police said, and is expected to survive. No arrest has been reported.
