SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Police have yet to release a motive behind the fatal shootings of two women and the serious wounding of a man at a shopping center in a trendy San Francisco neighborhood.

A bloodied gunman suspected of the shooting was arrested after opening fire on officers Friday afternoon.

Officers encountered the suspect outside the San Francisco GiftCenter and JewelryMart who began shooting at officers while running toward a restaurant. He surrendered after apparently running out of ammunition.

Inside, officers found the women inside the Victoga jewelry shop dead and the man wounded. Witnesses say the women were employees and the man is the owner.

Police Chief Greg Suhr said police didn't know the relationship between the suspect and the victims even though he had previously been seen in the building.
