Police shooting kills Bayview suspect

0

A suspect shot by police Wednesday┬áin San Francisco’s Bayview District has died, police Chief Greg Suhr said.

The incident was initially reported by San Francisco Municipal Railway officials at 4:50 p.m. as police activity near Third Street and Paul Avenue.

The suspect, a man in his 20s whose name has not yet been released, was involved in an earlier stabbing nearby, according to police.

Police have released scant details about the incident. However, a video posted to the social media site Instagram, apparently filmed by a bystander aboard a Muni vehicle, appears to show a man limping on the sidewalk and surrounded by police officers.

In the video, someone urges the man to “just drop it,” then seconds later a number of shots ring out.

The officer-involved shooting comes as the San Francisco Police Commission was considering policies this evening for body-worn cameras by the Police Department’s officers.

The cameras, not yet worn by officers, are slated to be deployed in San Francisco sometime in 2016.
