9 Injured in Mass Shooting, 1 in Critical Condition.

In what police described as a “targeted and isolated” incident, nine individuals were hurt in a shooting spree in San Francisco’s Mission District on Friday night. The incident reportedly took place just after 9 p.m. during a party held by a clothes company close to the junction of Treat Avenue and 24th Street.

At first, the San Francisco Police Department stated that all of the victims were “expected to survive their injuries.” However, according to a statement from the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, one of the victims was still in serious condition as of Saturday afternoon.

Four people were in fair condition, one was reportedly in severe condition, three had already been released, and another was. According to the hospital, the casualties were eight males and one woman, ranging in age from 20 to 34.

The violence was called “unacceptable” by police head William Scott.

Scott stated, “People should feel secure leaving their homes in San Francisco without worrying about becoming victims of gun violence.” There will be a noticeable police presence in the area where this happened going ahead since our detectives are constantly working on this case.

According to a post on the apparel store’s Instagram page, a block party to commemorate Dying Breed’s sixth anniversary was planned for Friday night. Dying Breed is located near to the intersection where the shooting took place.

The store’s phone operator chose not to make any comments.

One of San Francisco’s oldest neighbourhoods, the Mission District is named after the Mission Dolores, a 1776-era Spanish mission. The colourful neighbourhood, which has a long history of being Latino but has been gentrifying more recently, is home to several eateries and stores.

First responders responded quickly after the shooting, according to Mayor London Breed, who also underlined that “no lives were lost.”

Breed stated, “I realise there are many queries and worries in the community, and people want answers. We are still trying to figure out precisely what happened and why, and we’ll let you know as soon as we know more.
