Gunman wounds three at San Francisco park packed with families and tourists

3 shot at San Francisco's Dolores Park

According to the SFPD, the three victims - identified Friday as a 37-year-old man, a 16-year-old male, and a 69-year-old man - were located "near the vicinity of the foot bridge at Church and Cumberland Streets".

Hatter, a witness who goes by that name, told the SF Gate that he saw some park regulars confront the group of men.

Unconfirmed reports on social media indicate that at least one person was wounded in the incident; ABC7 reports that a wounded male victim has been transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Law enforcers have asked residents and tourists to avoid the popular hillside park overlooking the downtown while a police operation is under way to find the shooter.

An investigation is ongoing and no other information was immediately available. A second later, one man pulled a handgun and rapidly fired six or seven shots, he said.

The San Francisco Police Department says people should stay away from Dolores Park, where the shooting happened Thursday afternoon.

"I normally can handle (myself) well in these situations, but I was pretty sure I had just lost my life", he said, the Chronicle reported.

A witness says the park was packed at the time of the shooting with families and tourists.

Then she saw a man holding a gun. Other witnesses said it was the arrival of police cars which made it apparent that it was shots, and then people began to run for cover.

Juhasz said many parents and children did not react fast enough to the danger because they thought the gunshots were fireworks.

"We do know that suspects fled the scene, but we're not entirely sure which direction", San Francisco Police spokeswoman Grace Gatpandan told the San Francisco Examiner.
