Investigation Underway for Targeted Mass Shooting at San Francisco Block Party

SAN FRANCISCO — On Sunday, the san francisco police initiated a search for a person of interest connected to a mass shooting that occurred during a block party in san francisco on Friday night. Investigators described the incident as a “Targeted and isolated” event.

According to the police, the person of interest is believed to be a male member of a street gang. Detectives have linked him to a Mercedes sedan, captured on surveillance video, which was observed speeding away from the shooting scene.

The san francisco chronicle reported that the man has active firearm warrants from San Mateo and Alameda counties, as well as an outstanding arrest warrant for homicide in Oakland.

The shooting took place shortly after 9 p.M. On Friday during an anniversary party organized by the clothing store dying breed near the intersection of 24th Street and treat avenue in the Mission district. The Chronicle reported that among the victims were eight men and one woman, ranging in age from 19 to 35.

Initially, the san francisco police department stated that all the victims were expected to survive their injuries. However, Zuckerberg san francisco general hospital released a statement on Saturday indicating that one victim remained in critical condition.

The age and gender of that victim were not immediately disclosed. Another victim was reported to be in serious condition, four were in fair condition, and three had already been discharged by Saturday afternoon.

In an early Sunday morning social media statement, representatives from dying breed and mission skateboards, another business at the block party, condemned the shooting as a “Hateful senseless act” that had impacted their local community.

They expressed their disappointment that such spiteful actions had taken place during an event that was intended to bring people together.

Authorities urged anyone with information about the shooting to contact the police.
