The Dolores Park shooting in San Francisco Thursday afternoon left at least three people injured, two in critical condition, while hundreds ran for cover.

Physicians treated the two critically injured men at San Francisco General Hospital, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Hospital spokesman Brent Andrew said that a third patient from the scene was a minor and his name and condition were being withheld.

"We do know that suspects fled the scene, but we're not entirely sure which direction," San Francisco Police spokeswoman Grace Gatpandan told the San Francisco Examiner. When asked if the incident appeared to be gang-related, she said, "It does not appear that this is a random event."

Police arrived to the park after receiving reports of shots fired just after 3 p.m. Thursday, the Examiner reported. Authorities located three victims at the footbridge that runs over the Municipal Railway tracks on the western side of the park, near the Church and 19th Street intersection, police told the newspaper.

"We were just playing at the playground, and it was a quick succession, four shots," Salome Milstead told the Examiner after the shooting, saying that she was there with her two children. "The shooting happened at the overpass, over the tracks. There was a little distance. Everyone grabbed their kids and ran. The park emptied out."

Antonia Juhasz told the San Francisco Chronicle that the park was "packed with kids, packed with people" at the time of the shooting. She said to the newspaper that she heard popping sounds that she first associated with fireworks.

Juhasz said she saw a man holding a gun with his arm extended, the Chronicle reported. She told the newspaper that she crouched behind a trash can after that and called 911.

"I've lived here for years, and this doesn't happen," Juhasz told the Chronicle. "It's awful, actually."
