Two people taken to the hospital after South of Market shooting

Suspect fled the area and remains at large

Two people suffered life-threatening injuries in a shooting in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood Friday afternoon.

Officer Joseph Tomlinson said shots were fired Sixth and Mission streets around 1:38 p.m. Responding officers found two male victims on the ground with gunshot wounds, both of whom were taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The suspect fled the scene and had not yet been located as of shortly before 3 p.m.

Residents and witnesses gathered in the area after the shooting said the two victims had been shot by a third person, possibly after a fight.
