Two teenagers were arrested for shooting five people in San Francisco, just blocks away from the city's gay pride celebrations.

The shooting happened shortly after 6 p.m. on Saturday near Market and Seventh streets. Two people were shot in the leg and one was shot in the buttocks, while two other victims were shot in the torso, according to Lt. Troy Dangerfield of the San Francisco Police Department.

Investigators believe the shootings weren't connected to the celebrations but instead targeted two gang members who were shot. Three innocent bystanders were also shot.

Police say the two suspects are 16 and 18 years old and are now facing assault with a deadly weapon and gang charges.
