11:19 AM: Thanks for the tip about an emergency response in The Junction. SFD and SPD are at the Mural Apartments across from Jefferson Square for a “scenes of violence” response. We’re on the way to find out more.
11:28 AM: Medics are transporting one person. This happened inside the apartment building so we haven’t yet been able to talk to officers, who are inside investigating.
11:39 AM: SFD’s incident commander tells us the person going to the hospital is a man in his 20s with a gunshot wound. The circumstances remain under investigation. A chaplain has been dispatched.
12:38 PM: We went back to the scene and caught up with police getting ready to leave. They would only say “there’s no public safety concern.”
12:55 PM: SFD spokesperson David Cuerpo tells WSB that the victim is 25 and was transported in critical condition, and that this was reported as self-inflicted.
As always when we mention suicide or attempted suicide, we want to remind you that there is 24/7 help – the Crisis Connections hotline is 206-461-3222.
