Three shot in robbery attempt at Fort Mason 

Three young adults are recovering from gunshot wounds from an apparent robbery after a man jumped out from behind a bush in Fort Mason on Wednesday night. He was still at large Thursday.

The victims were hit by two bullets. A 17-year-old boy was shot in the stomach with one, and the other bullet grazed the head of a 22-year-old woman, then hit a man’s leg. They’re all expected to recover, according to the National Park Service, which oversees the area.

The trio was with a group of about a dozen young adults who live in The City, and had just left Aquatic Park before 10 p.m. when they were confronted by a man in a hooded sweatshirt, park service spokeswoman Alexandra Picavet said.

Investigators are trying to figure out who the man is and what his motive was.

The group had an altercation with another group at Aquatic Park, but it was unclear Thursday if that was related to the shooting.

The 17-year-old boy was recovering from surgery Thursday and the other two were released from the hospital Wednesday night.

After the shooting, one of the victims went to a nearby hostel and a staff member contacted police. None of the victims were staying at the hostel. The shooting did not take place on the hostel’s grounds.
