A 16-year-old mugger has been killed after a bullet fired by an accomplice ricocheted off their victim’s face and shot him dead.

The incident happened when a group of males accosted the man at a housing complex in San Francisco and demanded he hand over his possessions, police said.

The man complied, but as the muggers were taking his valuables, including a mobile phone, one of them pulled a handgun and shot at him.

The bullet struck his face, bounced off, then hit one of the other robbers, 16-year-old Clifton Chatman.

When police arrived on the scene, Chatman was pronounced dead and the muggers’ victim was taken to hospital with serious injuries. He is expected to survive.
