Shooting Near S.F. Pride Wounds Five


Five people were wounded Saturday at a shooting near San Francisco's gay pride festivities.

According to witnesses, two groups fought near the corner of Seventh and Market streets, close to the epicenter of the city's pride celebration, before shots rang out around 6:15 p.m. A member of one of the groups was struck, as were four bystanders. All five were taken to the hospital.

Police said the incident had nothing to do with the gay pride celebration, though it is not known if any of the injured bystanders were there for the festivities.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that a 16-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man, both city residents, were arrested "on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon as well as charges related to gun possession and gang affiliation." The individuals were not identified.
