SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities say three men with clown masks and a gun ran from a downtown San Francisco shopping center after they were discovered by security guards on Sunday.

The San Francisco Examiner reports (https://bit.ly/2dCrzix) San Francisco Police Department spokesman Officer Carlos Manfredi says the guards were doing their rounds in the emergency stairwells in the mall when they came across the three men. Manfredi says one brandished a gun.

No one was injured.

The men remain at large.

The report joins a growing number of incidents involving clowns in the San Francisco Bay Area and nationwide.

Most of the threats have been hoaxes.
