A portion of the Tenderloin is currently closed to traffic while police investigate a triple shooting that sent three women to the hospital this afternoon.

According to Sgt. Daryl Fong, the shooting happened just after 1 p.m. on the corner of Ellis and Leavenworth. When police arrived, they found three women with gunshot wounds to their lower body. All three were taken to San Francisco General Hospital and are expected to survive.

"It was not a random shooting," Fong told us.

Police told the Chron that one of the victims might be the shooter's ex-girlfriend. However, Fong said they weren't 100 percent positive of this, and were not prepared to confirm those reports.

Meanwhile, the shooter is still on the lam, and traffic is being diverted.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
