A shooting Sunday night left at least two people injured on a street near Jefferson Square Park, after a barrage of gunfire was heard throughout the Fillmore neighborhood.
About 15 to 20 shots rang out just before 9:30 p.m. Sunday from what sounded like a semi-automatic or automatic weapon, in the Fillmore District — and on the same one-block street where a fatal shooting occurred in early September.
According to the Citizen app, the shooting occurred near 616 Larch Way, which is the same alley between Eddy, Turk, Laguna, and Buchanan streets where a person was shot on September 6 and later died from their injuries.
Early reports on the Citizen app suggested there were two victims and three assailants, but this has not yet been confirmed by the SFPD.
Police have reportedly shut down this one block, the 600 block of Larch Way, for an investigation.

Witnesses and the SFPD have advised that the suspect vehicle was a gray Honda CR-V with a CA license plate 8CEC613, and it was last seen heading westbound on Turk Street.
SFist will update this post as soon as more information is known about the number of victims and their status.
Update: Supervisor Dean Preston subsequently tweeted that two individuals were taken to an area hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds.
A separate report from the Citizen app at around the same time of the shooting came from a person inside a residence at 1929 Ellis Street, several block away from where the two people were shot, saying that a bullet had come through a window at 9:30 p.m.
Update 2: The SFPD has confirmed that two male victims were shot and injured in the gunfire on Larch Way just before 9:30 p.m. Sunday. As KRON4 reports, one victim was being treated for life-threatening injuries, while the other sustained non-life-threatening injuries. The shooting also reportedly caused damage to parked cars in the area.
