A Saturday evening shooting at Eddy and Taylor streets injured five individuals, none of whose injuries appear to be life-threatening; SF police have yet to make it clear if any arrests in connection to the shooting have been made.
According to KTVU, the Tenderloin shooting occurred around 9:30 p.m. near the corner of the still-closed PianoFight bar. Initially, it was believed that at least three people were injured in the act of violence, though it was later clarified that the shooting involved five individuals.

SFPD tweeted yesterday that on-site officers did collect firearms at the scene of the violence, but have since remained vague on other details. (No mention of any arrests have yet been made by the SF police department.)
What is clear, however, is that the five people harmed in the shooting all sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
