Early Wednesday morning, several people were wounded in a shooting that took place in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill neighborhood, according to ABC News. At least three people were struck, though there may be more.
A huge police response has gathered near 17th and Vermont, close to a UPS facility, which seems to be the source of the gunfire. Victims have been brought to the hospital, and 5KPIX reports that police started telling people to avoid the area around 9 a.m. PT, advising local residents to shelter in place.
Police have not yet lifted the advisory that people shelter in place. This is an ongoing story and will be updated.
