SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Police say they hope nearby surveillance video will help in their search for a gunman who shot at another man outside a crowded mall in downtown San Francisco.

Authorities on Monday were still searching for the man believed to be in his late teens to early 20s who fled the chaotic scene outside the Westfield San Francisco Centre Sunday night.

Police say a 19-year-old man who was shot stumbled down to the nearby Powell Street transit station where he collapsed, prompting a temporary evacuation and closure of the station.

Officer Gordon Shyy says the victim was rushed into surgery at a hospital Sunday night. He is expected to survive after suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

The victim's name has not been released.
