A shooting Tuesday afternoon at a mall south of San Francisco did not involve an active shooter randomly firing but instead possibly two people shooting at each other or someone else in the mall, authorities said at a news conference.
San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said the Police Department got a call around 4 p.m. about shots fired at the Shops at Tanforan.
Upon responding, police found two people with lower extremity gunshot wounds. Both victims were transported to a hospital; one is in serious condition and the other in critical condition.
Law enforcement officers were still searching for two suspects, looking in the mall, nearby parking lots and on BART trains, as the pair might have left the scene on a train.
The incident at Tanforan has been contained. Public safety personnel will be on scene for several hours. Please continue to stay out of the area. Vehicles parked in associated lots will be accessible in the next few hours. @ShopsAtTanforan anticipates reopening tomorrow at 10AM.— San Bruno Police (@SanBrunoPolice) July 3, 2019
Barberini said authorities believe there is no immediate threat to the public.
Authorities are still reviewing surveillance footage but plan to soon release photographs of the two people believed to be involved.
As a precaution, BART closed the San Bruno station for about four hours.
The Tanforan mall is expected to reopen 10 a.m. Wednesday.
