SAN FRANCISCO — Two people were injured, one critically, in a shooting in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood Wednesday afternoon, police Chief Greg Suhr said.

The shooting was reported at about 2:45 p.m. at Turk and Leavenworth streets, just a few blocks away from a large celebration in Civic Center Plaza for the Giants' World Series title.

Suhr said the victims, believed to be Norteno gang members from Union City, came across a rival gang and were shot.

One was critically wounded in the shooting and was undergoing surgery at a hospital Wednesday evening while the other was grazed by a bullet and has already been treated and released, Suhr said.

Police had initially said both victims suffered life-threatening injuries.

No arrests had been made and no suspect information was immediately available in connection with the shooting as of this evening.

Are you saying the shooter opened fire for no reason? Did he mistake your brother for being a gang member? Was the shooter a gang member?

He is doing great given the circumstances, healing well and expected to fully recover with the exception of living forever with pices of the bullet lodged in his body @zinn no one knows who the shooter is therefor I have no idea if he is or is not a gang member.
