SAN FRANCISCO -- Two men were killed in a shooting in San Francisco's Visitacion Valley neighborhood Monday afternoon, a police spokesman said.
The shooting started as a fight that was reported at 1:12 p.m. in the first block of Burr Avenue, near Argonaut Avenue.
A minute later, police received reports that two people had been shot, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
Emergency crews responded and found the two victims suffering from gunshot wounds. At least one had been shot in the head, Esparza said.
Both victims, men believed to be in their early 20s, were taken to San Francisco General Hospital where they were pronounced dead, Esparza said. Their names were not being released this afternoon.
Early this afternoon, a pool of blood could be seen in the middle of Burr Avenue.
A resident of Argonaut Avenue said she was at home when she heard a commotion. She went to the window and saw people yelling at each other. A short time later, she heard two or three shots, then saw two people on the ground bleeding.
"We were so scared," she said.
No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting. Homicide investigators are asking community members to come forward with any leads in the case, according to Esparza.
