San Francisco police were searching Tuesday afternoon for a shooter in the city’s Excelsior District after three students were shot outside a high school campus, officials said.

The shooting happened near the City Arts and Technology High School and the June Jordan School for Equity, which share a campus, police said. A spokeswoman for the fire department said four people were injured in the incident, though one, who didn’t have a gunshot wound, declined medical treatment.

One of the victims, a girl, was shot in the upper extremities and had life-threatening injuries, said Officer Carlos Manfredi, a police spokesman. Two male victims were shot in the lower extremities and had non-critical injuries.

They all ran inside the school before paramedics rushed them to a hospital.

Four male suspects were last seen running west on Brazil Avenue away from the school, Manfredi said. Police believe that at least one of the victims was the target of the shooting.

The school district tweeted that a student had been targeted by “outsiders.”

June Jordan was placed on “lock-out” — meaning no one could enter the building — after the shooting, which was reported at 3:20 p.m., right around dismissal time.

Officers initially thought they were dealing with an active shooter situation and went classroom to classroom looking for the gunman.

“It was terrifying,” said Fernando Rodriguez, 16, a junior at June Jordan.

Rodriguez said he was walking down a school hallway when he heard at least six “pops.” He and others immediately bolted as teachers corralled them into classrooms.

A shelter-in-place order was also issued for the surrounding area as officers looked for the four suspects.
