5 People were Shot near San Francisco's Gay Pride Festivities

Lighting struck twice in San Francisco. Five people were shot in near the Gay Pride events.

Here's more:
Police spokesman Lt. Troy Dangerfield says a gunman fired shortly after 6 p.m. Saturday night near Market Street and Sixth Street. Two people were hit in the torso and are being treated for serious injuries at a hospital. Three others are being treated for minor injuries.

The shooting was a few blocks from the city's Gay Pride festivities at the Civic Center, which had just ended for the day. There was no immediate word on whether the incident had any connection to the festival.
Later, the cops found a suspect, but they are not sure if there were more than one shooter.

It seems that San Fran's Pride is beset by shootings. Last year, a gang member shot into a crowd of people during Pink Saturday. I have to wonder, what's really going on in San Fran?

I would think that San Fran would be the most tolerant place since it it overtly open and there is no doubt that it is one of the meccas of LGBT community....not sure what is going on here as well!

Makes one wonder, doesn't it. I used to think SF was the most accepting of cities, or at least more tolerant than others. The world, unfortunately, has become one big asylum.
