Update: SFPD Arrests Two Teens After Mid-Market Shooting That Injured Five (Video)

7:37 PM: SFPD has revised earlier reports of this evening’s mid-Market shooting, and is now saying that there were five victims, not one, as they previously reported.

According to SFPD spokesperson Lt. Troy Dangerfield, five people were shot on the 1000 block of Market Street (near 7th Street) at 6:15 Saturday night by a suspect described as a black male in his 20s, about 6 feet tall with dreadlocks.

Three of the shooting victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries to the legs and buttocks. Two others were shot in the torso, and have been transported to an area hospital with injuries Dangerfield says were considered life-threatening.

“It is still early in the investigation” Dangerfield said, saying that he expected more details to emerge as officers from Southern Station continue their inquiry.

8:28 PM: Bluoz has photos from the scene, saying that “I heard the shots and it sounded like 30-40 shots from a semi-automatic.”

6:48 PM: One man was injured in a shooting on in San Francisco’s mid-Market area this evening, an SFPD spokesperson has confirmed.

According to SFPD spokesperson Lt. Troy Dangerfield, a 26-year-old man was shot in the leg at 6:14 this evening, on the 1000 block of Market Street (that’s Market between 6th and 7th).

Dangerfield, who had only received a preliminary report when contacted by the Appeal, said that contrary to some reports, he did not believe there was more than one victim of the shooting.

He did not have further details on this shooting, but said he expected to be updated shortly — so we’ll update then, too.
