More Details Released On Dolores Park Shooting Victims, Suspects Still At Large

Police in San Francisco have told people to stay away from a popular park after three people were injured in a shooting on Thursday (4 August).

[Update: 4:10pm] According to an SFPD statement, police transported three people from the scene with gunshot wounds, but there's no word on their condition.

Two adult men and a male minor were shot around 3pm and taken to hospital, as authorities report one of the adults is in critical condition.

A witness told NBC Bay Area a group of about five to six people wearing bandanas approached a group on a bridge at the park. "Two people got hit behind me and luckily I only had a fragment stick to my trousers, so", said Hatter, witness.

Police are now searching for several suspects and will stay at the park this evening to investigate, KPIX reported.

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

As you likely know, at 3:05 p.m. Thursday five or more shots rang out in Dolores Park, sending park-goers scrambling for cover and fleeing to safety.

Antonia Juhasz, another witness, said she was sitting in the park reading when she heard the gunfire.

Then she saw a man holding a gun.

Two people directly behind Hatter were struck by bullets, one in the head and one in the leg, he said.

SFPD spokesperson Officer Grace Gatpandan tells the Chron that "Witnesses saw several people speeding away from the park in a car" after the shooting, which "was not a random act or event".

The shooter from the crime scene disappeared, the police are after him.

She said to the newspaper that she heard popping sounds that she first associated with fireworks.
