Multiple shot at San Francisco park crowded with families

Three people were shot Thursday after a gunman opened fire at a San Francisco park full of families and tourists, police said.

Police are looking for at least one gunman who escaped from Dolores Park, Officer Grace Gatpandan said. Paramedics rushed the three injured people to a hospital, with one sustaining life-threatening traumata, Fox 2 reported.

The gunfire unfolded around 3:05 p.m.

Antonia Juhasz, who lives nearby, said she heard a total of three shootings, and that she saw someone running with a gun in their hand.

Juhasz said she saw two people who had been shot. Both were hemorrhaging as emergency workers carried them away on stretchers, she said.

“At first people didn’t entirely react because it sounded like fireworks, ” said Juhasz, a novelist and freelance journalist. “I was screaming at people,` It’s actually a gun, it’s actually a gun.'”

“It was scaring, largely because people weren’t reacting, ” she added.

People began running after realizing there had been gunshots, she said.

Dolores Park sits on a mound in the Mission District and is a popular destination for locals and tourists who come to sunbathe and take up city opinions. It’s also near a high school.
