Just before 1 a.m. this morning, two men were shot and killed near the south side of McLaren Park in Visitacion Valley. Three suspects were seen fleeing the area near the intersection of Brookdale and Blythedale avenues, about a block from an early education school.

Police officers arrived on the scene to find the two victims suffering from gunshot wounds. Both were declared dead on the scene.

According to KTVU, police were searching the area for three men they believe were connected to the shooting: two African Americans and a Samoan. They were seen leaving the scene in a white truck.

The deaths mark San Francisco's 16th and 17th homicides this year.
