San Francisco police are investigating multiple shootings that occurred as people partied during Gay Pride this weekend.

Last night, at about 6:30 p.m., shots were reportedly fired somewhere near Golden Gate and Hyde streets where thousands of people were gathered to celebrate Gay Pride. KTVU obtained cell phone footage of people scattering after hearing the gunfire (see below).

According to the news station, an armed man near the scene was taken into custody shortly after the incident was reported, however, it was not known if police were linking him to it.

An hour later, police were called out to the 900 block of Market Street where a woman had been shot. She was standing near the Warfield Theater when she was hit by bullets, police said. She was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where she's expected to survive.

Officer Gordon Shyy said police have arrested someone in connection to that shooting, but would not release details yet.

And then on Saturday, at about 7 p.m., a man was shot near Market and Mason streets. The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital and is also expected to survive. Police have no suspects in that case, and are busy this morning chasing down leads.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to call SFPD ASAP.

  • 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.'"
