SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Two people have been detained after a shooting on Market Street in San Francisco Thursday afternoon, a police spokeswoman said.

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.

No one appears to have been struck in the shooting, which prompted the closure of Market Street and the re-routing of Municipal Railway buses around the area, Gatpandan said.

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.

The SFMTA was reporting that metro service was moving slowly between the Powell and Montgomery stations at around the same time due to a possible intruder, but there was no word if the two incidents were related.

About ten minutes later, the SFMTA Tweeted that the delay had been cleared.

No other information was immediately available.
