SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — Three people were hospitalized after being shot in a drive-by shooting in San Francisco early Sunday morning, police said.

Officers responded to reports of shots fired near Van Ness Avenue and Clay Street in the city’s Pacific Heights neighborhood around 2:10 a.m., San Francisco police Lt. Troy Dangerfield said.

According to preliminary information, the victims were driving on Van Ness Avenue and were followed by a suspect vehicle, which pulled up alongside and someone from inside opened fire.

Five to seven shots were fired, Dangerfield said. It wasn’t clear what preceded the shooting.

Three men in the victims’ vehicle were hit by gunfire. All three were hospitalized with wounds that were not expected to be life threatening.
