An elderly woman bystander was killed and two other innocent bystanders were hurt during a shooting Wednesday morning in San Francisco's Oceanview neighborhood, police said.

The 65-year-old woman was pronounced dead after she was rushed to a local hospital for treatment. The woman was said to have lived very close to where the gunfire occurred.
