San Francisco police are holding a town hall meeting on Tuesday to discuss a case in which two people were wounded by officers’ gunfire in the city’s Mission District over the weekend.

The meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. Tuesday at Cornerstone Church, located at 3459 17th St. and will be conducted by police Chief Greg Suhr.

Police said the incident started at about 2 a.m. Sunday when two groups of people got in a confrontation outside of a bar near Valencia and 17th streets.

When someone pulled out what appeared to be a firearm, witnesses went to the nearby Mission police station to report the fight, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.

Two responding officers saw the person aiming the firearm at a group of people and opened fire, wounding the suspect and one other person, Shyy said.

Both people were taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries, although Shyy said today that one of the two who were shot is now expected to survive.

Police retrieved the weapon, an air-powered firearm, and have placed the two officers involved in the shooting on paid administrative leave pending an investigation, as is standard procedure.
