Victim seriously injured in shooting across from Lowell High School

Campus briefly locked down; no threat to students

One person was seriously injured Thursday afternoon in a shooting across the street from Lowell High School, according to authorities.

The victim was shot at a house across from the school near 26th Avenue and Eucalyptus Drive at around 2:07 p.m., police said.

The person was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

School officials locked down the campuses of Lowell High School and Lakeshore Elementary School as a precaution, police said.

Police have since determined that the shooting was not related to either school.

Laura Dudnick, a spokesperson for the San Francisco Unified School District, confirmed that the incident did not involve Lowell High School.

“The school was placed on lockout for 10 minutes as a precaution,” Dudnick said. “There is no threat to the school and all students are safe. The school day is continuing with regular operations.”

The schools are located near Lake Merced.
