Midday shootout shuts down part of Market Street SF; suspects detained

Part of Market Street in San Francisco was shut down Thursday afternoon because after police observed two men shooting at one another. No one was hurt and just after 4 p.m. police say Market Street was reopening. 

Two suspects have been detained, according to police and a weapon has been recovered.  

Officers on patrol in the 1000 block of Market Street between Sixth and Seventh streets heard shots fired shortly before 3 p.m. and were able to detain the pair and recover a weapon, San Francisco police spokeswoman Officer Grace Gatpandan said. 

San Francisco police wrote on Twitter shortly after 3 p.m. asking people to avoid the 1000 block of Market Street between Sixth and Seventh streets because of unspecified police activity.

Eastbound Market Street has since reopened and the westbound side will reopen shortly, Gatpandan said shortly after 4 p.m.

The two people detained will be taken to a police station for questioning, she said.
