On Thursday at the San Francisco Dolores park, some gunman opened fire in public, leaving 3 people injured.

San Francisco police advised people to stay away from Dolores Park right after the shooting but lifted that advisory two hours later.

San Francisco General Hospital spokesman Brent Andrew said one of the victims was in critical condition, according to the Chicago Tribune newspaper.

Antonia Juhasz, another witness, said she was sitting in the park reading when she heard the gunfire. The men appeared to be in their late teens or early 20s and some of them wore bandannas that covered all but their eyes, the witnesses said.

Police are looking for at least one gunman who fled the scene at Dolores Park. "I went up there to mediate and make sure everything was OK and nobody was fighting".

He claims that when he approached the scene, he heard someone yell, 'They're strapped, bro!' and then one of the men pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots.

The park, which sits on a hill, was crowded with people, including children in a playground and running around the grass.

"I normally can handle (myself) well in these situations, but I was pretty sure I had just lost my life", Hatter said.

Then she saw a man holding a gun.

She said she started yelling, 'It's actually a gun, it's actually a gun!' to get people's attention.

An investigation is ongoing and no other information was immediately available.

Two people directly behind him were struck, one in the head and another in the leg, Hatter said, while he escaped with a leg injury, possibly from a fragment of a ricocheting bullet.

According to the SFPD, they're seeking five male suspects, and before some among you get peevish, police say that their age or race is "unknown".

Several witnesses stated that about half a dozen men, some wearing bandanas to hide their faces, started shouting and acting threateningly on a bridge that leads into the park.
