On Sunday, just before 5 p.m., driver Julian Leon III went to Adventure Island to pick up to potential riders - 23-year-old Austin Korb and 27-year-old Skylar Korb.

Videos posted on social media showed a chaotic scene with arriving officers struggling to subdue several individuals. San Francisco police said they began to receive reports of a fight at the mall at about 6:43pm local time.

An Uber driver refused to allow two potential passengers to enter his vehicle because they were wet, which led to a verbal altercation, according to a release from TPD.

The trio began to argue, which turned physical.

The verbal altercation progressed into a physical one.

Leon, who police said felt in fear of his life, reached into his vehicle and grabbed a gun. As the group struggled over the gun, a round was sacked.
