SAPD Gang Detectives attempted to contact a group of male subjects early this morning, according to their Twitter account.
Two male subjects ran holding their waist area and they attempted to hide near a stairwell.
A semi-auto handgun with a loaded extended 30 round magazine was located in a nearby planter.
Both subjects were on probation and are documented gang members. They were both arrested for several felony charges.
The SAPD did not disclose where the arrest happened and they did not identify the suspects.
