""That's going to be part of the homicide investigation, does it appear to be targeted," explained is this Officer Albie Esparza with the San Francisco Police Department.

Just feet away was a crew of San Francisco Park and Rec workers. None of them were injured. They were questioned by police in hopes they may provide information on the shooters.

There were also quite a few neighborhood residents nearby using the soccer fields, which gets a lot of traffic. Regulars say they're surprised to see the crime scene.

"I was trying to get in, but I saw the police cars so I decided to park on the street," said Ahmed Alsaifawi, a neighbor.

"It shouldn't scare us because it depends who and why and where these people are from," said Danilo Posadas, another neighbor.
