MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A gunman shot three people Thursday at the crowded Dolores Park in San Francisco in the US state of California, the San Francisco Police Department said.

“SFPD is on scene investigating a shooting that occurred. 3 shooting victims at this time. All are being transported to the hospital,” the department tweeted.
