Suspects have not been identified.
Update 3:42 p.m: Police release names of suspects. Read update after the jump.

Original Story 7:09 a.m.: Three people are in the hospital this morning after being gunned down at about 3:50 a.m. today, just a few blocks from the 16th Street BART station.

According to Officer Gordon Shyy, police were called to the intersection of 16th and Rondel where they found one victim shot in the chest and two more with bullet wounds to their legs.

Cops spotted a suspect vehicle, and a car chase began. After a brief pursuit, the suspect vehicle eventually crashed somewhere in the Hunter's Point neighborhood. One police car was also involved in the collision, but there were no major injuries.

Police found two firearms inside the suspect vehicle; the three occupants inside the car were arrested in connection to the shooting, Shyy said.

The three shooting victims were taken to a local hospital, one with life-threatening injuries and two who are expected to survive.

Update: Police say the suspects drove up to the victims, got out of their black Mercedes station wagon, and shot all three victims before fleeing. The victims were only identified as a 40-year-old man, a 47-year-old man, both who were shot in the legs, and a 46-year-old man who was shot in the chest and is in critical condition.

The firearm believed to be used in the shooting was located and recovered on the roadway at Fitzgerald between Ingalls and Hawes. Two of the suspects were taken to the hospital with complaints of pain injuries they received after crashing their car when police were chasing them. They have been released from the hospital and all three were booked into the San Francisco County Jail.

After preliminary interviews, the incident appears to have been attempted robbery, that escalated to a shooting, police said. They arrested 34-year-old Larry Carr, 30-year-old Jason Whittenburg, and 33-year-old George Vickers, all San Francisco residents.

Each suspect was booked on multiple felonies, including attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, possession of an illegal firearm, and evading police officers.

Police are now following up on old robbery cases to see if they were involved.

And the charges were NEVER filed! There obviously wasn't enough evidence to convict him! Just because an individual is suspected of & or booked with certain charges, DOES NOT necessarily mean they are guilty!

What is the time they will serve in prison for this? If less than 20 years, then our prison system needs tightening.   Shockingly, however, Larry Carr already shot and killed a man just 9 years ago! http://sf-police.org/index.aspx?page=218

I work in the Mission occasionally at that time doing maintenance on network equipment. There are a lot of people roaming the Mission at that time. Most of them you don't want to make eye contact with unfortunately.
