A 25-year-old man died and at least five other victims injured in a shooting Saturday night in the Fillmore, authorities said.

Mister Dee Carnell Simmons III of San Leandro was identified Sunday by the Medical Examiner’s Office as the man who was killed in the shooting near Fillmore and Eddy streets at around 8:40 p.m.

Police said Simmons was pronounced dead at the scene.

Rachel Kagan, a spokesperson for Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, said five patients had been admitted in connection with the shooting, four male and one female.

Three of those patients were discharged in good condition, while one male remained in critical condition and one in serious condition as of Sunday morning.

Two of the victims were taken to the hospital by private vehicle, according to police Sgt. Michael Andraychak. Andraychak said the man in critical condition is 27 years old, while the other patients ranged in age from 19 to 50 years old.
