A horrific shooting incident occurred in San Francisco’s Mission District on Friday night, leaving nine people injured, some of them critically. The police said the shooting was “targeted and isolated” and that there was no ongoing threat to the public. The motive and the identity of the shooter or shooters remain unknown.
The shooting happened around 9 p.m. near the intersection of 24th Street and Treat Avenue, a busy area with many restaurants and bars. Witnesses reported hearing multiple gunshots and seeing people running for cover. The police arrived at the scene shortly after and found nine victims with gunshot wounds. They were transported to a hospital for treatment.
The police cordoned off the area and launched an investigation into the shooting. They did not provide any information about the suspect or suspects, or whether they were still at large. They asked anyone with information to contact them.
This is not the first time that San Francisco has witnessed a mass shooting this year. In April, one person was killed and four others were wounded in a shooting in North Beach, another popular neighborhood. The police said that shooting was also targeted and involved a dispute between two groups.
