SAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) — A shooting that caused panic at a mall near San Francisco left two teens with serious gunshot wounds and led to transit delays during rush hour Tuesday as police stopped a train to search for two suspects, authorities said.
Investigators believe the shooters, both “young males,” fired at each other with handguns at the Shops at Tanforan in San Bruno, said police Chief Ed Barberini.
Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital was treating two teen boys who were hit by gunfire, according to spokesman Brent Andrew. One of the victims is critical and the other is in serious condition, he said.
Two other people who were hurt were treated and released, but the nature of their injuries was unknown, said San Bruno Fire Chief David Cresta.
Investigators believe at least one of the shooters, and maybe both, fled on a train. The San Bruno train station, which is adjacent to the mall, was closed for several hours but reopened and train service resumed shortly after 8 p.m., authorities said.
