At least nine people were injured in a shooting incident that took place in San Francisco’s Mission District, according to local police. The shooting was deemed to be a “targeted and isolated incident”, police said. The incident occurred early this morning and multiple reports suggest that the situation is under control, with no active shooter on the scene.

The police advised the public to avoid the area while the investigation is ongoing. The injured individuals were transported to local hospitals, where they are receiving treatment for their injuries.

Eyewitnesses reported hearing multiple gunshots in the area, and police responded to the scene shortly thereafter. The specific circumstances behind the incident remain unclear, and it is unknown whether any suspects have been apprehended.

The shooting is the latest in a string of gun violence incidents that have plagued San Francisco and other major cities across the United States in recent years. Local officials have long urged stricter gun control measures to curb the rising tide of violence, but progress on the issue has been slow.
