San Bruno police investigating shooting at Tanforan Mall, 2 wounded

San Bruno police said they are at Tanforan Mall in San Bruno investigating reports of a shooting. They advised residents to stay out of that area.

Brent Andrews, spokesperson for San Francisco General Hospital, told ABC7 there were four victims in the shooting, two of whom were taken to SF General. He said two victims taken to SF General were juveniles, “15-18 years old,” with gunshot injuries. One of the victims is in critical condition and the other is in serious condition. Andrews also said the two others were taken to other hospitals in the area.

BART tweeted that the 12th Street station in Oakland is closed as “police clear a train and search for possible suspects related to the situation at San Bruno.” Trains are running through that station and not stopping.

A crowd of people could be seen waiting outside the mall amid a heavy police presence in live video from ABC7.

Here’s what we know:

  • BART closed the San Bruno station after receiving reports of an active shooter at Tanforan Mall outside of the San Bruno station, the transit agency said in a tweet just after 4 p.m. Tuesday. “As precaution, trains are not stopping and the station is closed.
