The San Francisco Chronicle reported,

“At 4:30, police received a call from a parent on the 200 block of Amazon Avenue, near Geneva Avenue, reporting that his or her son was in possession of a gun. As police officers arrived, the suspect fled to the barbershop at 949 Geneva Ave., about a block away. At some point after police entered the barbershop, the suspect started shooting at them.”

News reports described a “chaotic” incident, with children crying, people ducking behind cars to avoid the bullets.  The police officer who was shot in the leg crawled to safety behind a patrol vehicle where he was treated by Paramedics. Another person who had been shot in the foot was dragged to a nearby Pharmacy and treated there. All of the injured were transported to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFGH).

The incident remains under investigation, and SFPD is requesting anyone with information to call the SFPD 24 Hour Tip Line at (415) 575-4444 or Text-A-Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD.
