(11-18) 05:15 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- Police are searching for suspects in three separate shootings in San Francisco this morning that left one person dead and eight more injured, according to officials.
At approximately 3:20 a.m., officers responded to the area of Treat Avenue and 23rd Street in the city's Mission District and found three victims suffering gunshot wounds, police said.
One person died and two were transported to San Francisco General Hospital, according to police.
About an hour earlier, at 2:10 a.m., officers responded to the 500 block of Florida Street, also located in the Mission District, where a dance club had apparently just closed, police said.
A fight that allegedly broken out in the club earlier may have prompted an unknown suspect to then shoot two people in their legs, according to police.
Both victims were in stable condition and transported to a local hospital for treatment to their wounds, police said.
Just 20 minutes earlier, a drive-by shooting in the city's South of Market neighborhood left four victims injured, according to police.
An unidentified vehicle was driving at Mission and 11th streets at about 1:50 a.m. when at least one suspect inside the car began firing shots at a group of people, police said.
Four victims were struck with bullets before the vehicle sped off, police said.
The victims were transported to San Francisco General Hospital where they are reportedly in stable condition.
Suspects remain at large for all three incidents, police added.
