Gunshots rang out near 16th and Mission streets yesterday afternoon in a shooting that wounded two men, according to police.
The victims were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
The shooting took place on the west side of Mission Street between 15th and 16th streets, near the former H&R Block, according to a resident who captured the shooting on camera.
The resident said the video showed a group of four people approaching two others on that block. One of the four in the group pulled out a gun and fired multiple rounds. The group fled north on Mission toward 15th Street, he said.
One or both of the victims crossed Mission, heading southeast toward the Bank of America on Mission between 16th and 17th streets, said the resident who recorded the incident.
Some 10 police cars showed up around the area, said the neighbor.
People could be seen fleeing south, away from the shooting, after it happened, said the man who had video footage of the incident.
Police were called to that block at about 12:42 p.m., rendered aid and summoned medics. Photographs on social media show paramedics treating the victims outside the tobacco shop.
San Francisco resident Lucky Gutierrez was on the 14-Muni bus minutes after police were called. Gutierrez and others were told to exit the bus because the road was blocked, he said.
He saw paramedics rendering aid to two people outside the smoke shop.
One woman, who passed by the area after the shooting, said that traces of the event were mostly gone by around 2:20 p.m., but she saw what appeared to be underwear with blood on it in the intersection.
Police haven’t made an arrest. It remains an open, active investigation.
