More from NBC San Diego:
A man was shot in the arm and several people arrested after an argument broke out Saturday in the area of the United Nations Plaza just as local Pride celebrations were winding down.
Police said they were called to the area on a report of shots fired just after 6 p.m. Officers detained several possible suspects on Market Street.
According to police, the incident started when several groups of men – “unrelated” to Pride events – became involved in a verbal dispute. The situation escalated when one subject pulled out a gun and fired shots, they said. One of the bullets hit a 64-year-old Pride spectator in the arm, police said. He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital and is reported to be in stable condition.
This video shows a ton of people running away from the shots which are also clearly audible. A few seconds later cops swoop in and move the crowd away.
