A 28-year-old man is dead after a double shooting in Golden Gate Park's Panhandle Friday evening, according to San Francisco police. 

Officer Grace Gatpandan says police are seeking a male homicide suspect who allegedly carjacked someone after the double shooting. Police are looking for a silver Toyota 4Runner, license plate: 7AOB816. 

Around 6:28 p.m. a group was arguing near Oak and Shraeder. It is unclear how everyone knew each other, but police say a single gunman approached the group and fired shots striking two victims. The 28-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. The other victim, who was only described as a male, was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Both victims were shot in the torso.  

Police say the suspect ran from the shooting scene to Fell Street where the carjacking happened. The carjacking victim is said to be okay. 

Police say there is no indication that the group of people who were arguing are homeless, despite many homeless people reportedly residing in the area. 

Police are working with the medical examiner to identify the victim who was fatally shot. No other information was immediately available. 

Weather conditions were nice this Friday evening. Police say because of that there may have been witnesses to what transpired during the argument and leading up to the shooting. Officer Gatpandan encourages anyone with information to contact SFPD or to get ahold of them through their anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444.
