Four teenage students were shot in the shared parking lot of two San Francisco high schools Tuesday, and one of the students is in critical condition, authorities say. A police spokesman says the shooting occurred as students were being let out of school for the day from the June Jordan School for Equity and City Arts and Technology High School, which share a campus, the AP reports. Three of the victims ran inside the June Jordan School, and police initially ordered students to stay in place until police searched each room and determined it was not an active shooter situation. A fourth victim hurt in the shooting went to the Bayview police station.

"One female victim has life-threatening injuries to her upper torso," the police spokesman says. He notes four male suspects wearing dark hoodies and jeans were seen running away from the area. The shooters, who are not students at the school, seemed to have targeted the female student, officials say. "This was an isolated incident outside of the school building where one student was being targeted by outsiders," the San Francisco Unified School District said in a statement. The school says it plans to reopen Wednesday, but that may change if the shooters haven't been apprehended, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. (Read more school shooting stories.)
