Two arrested in connection with shooting outside June Jordan high school

San Francisco police confirmed Thursday that two suspects have been arrested in connection with the shooting of four students outside June Jordan School for Equity on Tuesday afternoon.

Four high school students were shot in the campus parking lot as school let out around 3:20 p.m. Tuesday, and another four students were hit by BBs, prompting a lockdown at the school and neighboring homes to shelter in place.

The arrests announced Thursday included the suspected shooter and another person allegedly involved. Both are juveniles and male, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation but who did not want to be named.

In a statement, the department said, “This is an active and ongoing investigation.”
