Police are searching for two gunmen whom investigators believe were firing at each other when they seriously wounded two teens at a San Francisco area mall.

San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said that the shooters, both “young males,” opened fire with handguns Tuesday afternoon at the Shops at Tanforan.

Barberini says two teenage boys were hit by gunfire. Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital says one of the victims is critical and the other is in serious condition.

San Bruno Fire Chief David Cresta says two other people who were hurt during the incident were treated and released, but their injuries were unknown.

Investigators believe at least one of the gunmen, and maybe both, fled on a train. The San Bruno train station, which is adjacent to the mall, remains closed during the investigation. The search has led to region-wide transit delays at rush hour.
