BOLO: Three people shot in crowded San Francisco park, shooter on the run

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Latest on three people shot at a popular San Francisco park (all times local):

4:50 p.m.

A woman was sitting a popular San Francisco park when she says she heard a burst of gunshots and saw a person holding a gun and running.

Antonia Juhasz says the park was packed with families and tourists Thursday and that she started yelling, “It’s actually a gun, it’s actually a gun!” to get people’s attention.

She says it was a terrifying moment because people were not reacting, possibly thinking the blasts were fireworks. She says once people realized gunshots were erupting, they started running in a panic.

Juhasz says she saw someone running off with a handgun and two people bleeding profusely, who emergency workers carried away on stretchers.

Police say three people were shot and transported to hospitals but didn’t release other details.
