Suspect still at large after shooting into Market Street crowd, injuring 1

A suspect is still at large after shooting into a crowd of people in broad daylight at Sixth and Market streets, injuring one.

The shooting occurred this morning at approximately 10:04 a.m., police said. Witnesses say the suspect fired five shots on the sidewalk, which was crowded with pedestrians who fled at the sound of gunshots.

One of the bullets also shattered a window at Indian restaurant Dosa Allee, according to the Examiner.

Police arrived at the scene to find one victim, an adult male of unspecified age, with a gunshot wound. He was transported to the hospital in non-life-threatening condition. 

Police declined to share further details on the suspect, noting only that they have not yet been apprehended. An investigation remains underway.

Muni buses on Market Street saw some delays in the wake of the shooting, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency said, while outbound F-Market trains were switching back at the Ferry Building.

Witnesses to the shooting told the Examiner that they're concerned about what they see as a pattern of broad-daylight shootings in the Tenderloin. Just last month, a 27-year-old man was killed in another shooting a block away, at Market and Jones streets.

Anyone with information is asked to call the SFPD 24-hour tip line at (415) 515-4444 , or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with "SFPD." You may remain anonymous.
