Another day, another school shooting.

On Tuesday, Oct. 18, four victims were left injured, one in critical condition, when shots were fired at San Francisco’s June Jordan School for Equity and City Arts and Tech High School, two schools which share the same campus on La Grande Avenue in the Excelsior District.

At around 3:17 p.m., just as school was letting out, shots were fired into a group of students in the June Jordan School parking lot.

We walk into this school every day, every morning, and to hear gunshots like that — just scary.”

— Fernando Rodriguez

Soon thereafter, the schools issued lockdowns as each room was swept for the perpetrators.

Fernando Rodriguez, a junior at June Jordan, said he was walking down the hallway when he heard at least six “pops.” He said people ran in all directions as teachers tried to herd students into classrooms.

“It was terrifying,” he said in an interview with SF Gate, “We walk into this school every day, every morning, and to hear gunshots like that — just scary.”

In an interview with CNN, San Francisco Unified School District said that the shooting was “an isolated incident outside of the school building where one student was being targeted by outsiders.”

A June Jordan employee anonymously said there were “building tensions outside the classroom” that eventually resulted in the shooting.

Three students were rushed to San Francisco General Hospital straight from school, and a fourth walked in shortly before 6 p.m., saying he was injured in the shooting.

In an interview with SF Gate, Officer Carlos Manfredi said that a female victim “was shot in the upper extremities and suffered life-threatening injuries. Two male victims were shot in the lower extremities and suffered non-critical wounds.”

According to San Francisco Police Department, the four alleged suspects were last seen running west on Brazil Street away from the June Jordan campus. They were described as wearing dark pants and hooded sweatshirts.

San Francisco Unified School District spokesperson Heidi Anderson said June Jordan will reopen Wednesday, Oct. 19 with grief counselors and extra security.
