  • Three shot at San Francisco park crowded with families

He claims that when he approached the scene, he heard someone yell, 'They're strapped, bro!' and then one of the men pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots.

Two people directly behind Hatter were struck.

He says he escaped with only an injury, possibly from "shrapnel", to his leg. Later, authorities said two of the victims, both males, were in critical condition. He wouldn't provide any other details.

Three people have been shot at Dolores Park on Thursday afternoon, police said.

The victim in the shooting near Haight and Stanyan streets by Golden Gate Park suffered wounds that are not believed to be life-threatening, said police spokesman Officer Robert Rueca.

Police say the gunmen has not been captured. All three were transported to the hospital, and the Chron reports that one of the less-injured victims has already been discharged.




Antonia Juhasz, a witness, told local media that she saw a shooter firing with a handgun from behind a statue at the park, which was packed with kids and their parents at the time.

Juhasz said she saw a man holding a gun with his arm extended, the Chronicle reported.

"It was a terrifying, mostly because people weren't reacting", she added.

Speaking with ABC 7, Hatter says "Guy literally raised the gun to my face and I froze". When asked if the incident appeared to be gang-related, she said, "It does not appear that this is a random event". Both were bleeding as emergency workers carried them away on stretchers, she said.

We'll update this story as more information becomes available.

The gunshots rang out at around 3:00pm in Dolores Park near the statue of Miguel Hidalgo in the city's Mission District Thursday.
