Three people were hospitalized early Sunday morning after two separate incidents, including a shooting, outside a nightclub in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood, according to police.

At 2:38 a.m., officers responded to a report of a shooting in the 500 block of Fourth Street, near the Grand Nightclub, police said.

On the sidewalk, officers found two men, one about 25 years old and the other about 32 years old, suffering from gunshot wounds.

Both men were taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, according to police.

No arrest was made and a description of the suspects was not immediately available. The police department's Gang Task Force is investing the shooting.

Around the same time, officers responded to the same location after a fight was reported.

The victim, a 24-year-old man, had tried to break up a fight when one suspect "sucker punched" him, causing him to fall to the ground. A second suspect then kicked him in the head repeatedly, according to police.

The first suspect fled the scene. Arriving officers however were able to detain the second suspect, also a 24-year-old man.

The victim was taken to a hospital with head trauma not considered life-threatening, police said.
