2 dead in Brannan Street shooting, 1 suspect in custody
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Two people are dead following a shooting at the GiftCenter & JewelryMart complex in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood. One suspect is in police custody.
The shooting was reported at 2:03 p.m. When police arrived at the scene, they encountered a person who was covered was blood who then opened fire on the officers. The suspect then fled to a nearby restaurant and continued to fire at police, but then surrendered. Police did not return fire.
The two people killed were both inside Victoga, Inc. According to the GiftCenter & JewelryMart website, Victoga specializes in gold jewelry. San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr says both victims were women. One of the women suffered gunshot wounds and the other had wounds from an "edged weapon." A male victim sustained wounds from both weapons. He was transported to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries. The victims' identities have not been released.
While the suspect has not been identified, Suhr says it appears that it was not his first time inside the GiftCenter & JewelryMart. He was transported to a nearby hospital with a hand injury. He is in non-life threatening condition. His identity has not been released.
Employees at other nearby businesses, including REI and Pinterest were told to shelter in place. Police were treating the area as an active crime scene. Although there is believed to only be one suspect, police were continuing the area out of an overabundance of caution.
Brannan Street was closed between Seventh and Ninth streets and Eighth Street is closed between Townsend and Harrison streets.
