    I was there too… it was around 10:30 PM, not midnight as some of the news has been reporting. We were driving north on Mission, and were maybe 50 feet south of 17th when the shots were fired. I heard probably eight pops. I didn’t see the shooter, but there were probably 20 people within 50 feet of the intersection when it went down. Lucky that more people didn’t get hurt.

    I was there too – it definitely happened around 10:30 p.m. — we heard the shots just ahead of us at that time. There was an ambulance there waiting, but they would not act until police arrived. A man was pleading with them to help his friend who’d been shot, but they said they couldn’t do anything. I texted a friend at 10:45 p.m. just after we passed the scene.
