SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) —  A gunman remains at large after three people were shot at Dolores Park Thursday afternoon, police said.

The shooting happened at around 3:05 p.m. When officers arrived, they found three people near the foot bridge at Church and Cumberland streets suffering from gunshot wounds.

The three shot have been transported to the hospital. One of the three has life-threatening injuries.

The two others, which includes a boy, are expected to be OK.

Their conditions are not known at this time, and there is no suspect in custody.


San Francisco police will now have two officers patrolling the park seven days a week after the shooting. This used to only happen on weekends.

The officers will be either walking or biking through the park.


Here is the statement from police:

At approximately 3:05pm San Francisco Police responded to Dolores Park on the report of a shooting. Upon arriving at the scene, officers located three victims near the vicinity of the foot bridge at Church and Cumberland Streets. All three victims were transported to the hospital, 1 with life threatening injuries and 2 with non-life threatening injuries. Information on the victims is unavailable at this time as they are all receiving medical treatment at a local trauma facility.

SFPD investigators are working to further develop information on the suspect(s) and are asking the public to please report anything they saw. You can provide information to the SFPD Anonymous Tip Line via (41)5 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the beginning of the message.

Church Street between 18th and 19th will be closed off into the evening as the crime scene is processed, as well as the foot bridge and area by the MUNI tracks (West end of the park). Dolores Park is still open for the public to enjoy. MUNI will not be affected by the investigation.

Thank you for your continued patience as our officers continue the investigation.

Police say the shooting appears to be targeted.

Earlier in the day, there was another shooting nearby at a McDonalds on Stanyan and Haight.

One person was shot there, and he or she is in critical condition.

Those shootings don’t appear to be related.
