According to SFPD spokesperson Officer Gordon Shyy, officers were then involved in a collision while responding to a possible suspect vehicle wanted in connection with the triple shooting. No major injuries were reported as a result of the collision.

The three occupants of the suspect vehicle were arrested in connection with the shooting. Two firearms were also located in the vehicle, Shyy said.

The suspects’ identities have not been released at publication time.
