Law enforcement in San Francisco have started a manhunt after nine people were wounded in a shooting on Friday night. According to Eve Laokwansathitaya, a public information officer for the San Francisco Police Department, when police officers arrived at the scene in the city’s Mission District, they found numerous victims suffering from bullet injuries.

Laokwansathitaya informed that all nine victims are expected to survive and that the shooting appears to have been an isolated and targeted attack. She also stated that the police arrived near the area, known as “The Mission,” around 9 p.m. local time (12 a.m. ET).

Santiago Lerma, a legislative aide to Hillary Ronen, who is from District 9 on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, told NBC News affiliate KNTV that he heard the gunshots when he was near the area, with his 3-month-old baby, about an hour before the shooting occurred. He expressed his worry about the situation.
