SAN FRANCISCO (KTVU) - A manhunt is underway in San Francisco after two men were shot at one of the city's busiest intersections in broad daylight.
The intersection of 6th and Mission Streets is back open to through traffic after an hours-long investigation.
San Francisco Police said they were called to the scene at about 1:40 p.m. Friday after reports of shots fired. When they arrived, they found two victims on the ground.
"Upon arrival officer noticed two male victims down on the ground, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds, those victims were rushed to the hospital in life threatening condition," said Officer Joseph Tomlinson from San Francisco Police Department. "Unfortunately the suspect had fled the scene."
Witnesses report hearing three shots and when they looked outside saw the victims on the ground.
"Come out here and there's ambulance, all the police, they were loading a couple guys, one guy into each ambulance, one of them still moving and screaming, the other guy wasn't really moving at all," said a nearby neighbor.
Witnesses say moments before the shooting they heard a loud argument.
"I heard from several of my friends saying that they saw the incident earlier before the gunshots went down were this guy was threatening to shoot the person," said Octavia Taylor. "Apparently carried the threat through."
Police don't have a lot of details about the shooter at this point. But, they do say they are canvassing the area for witnesses and any surveillance video of the area at the time of the shooting.
