A man was shot by San Francisco police this morning after allegedly stabbing two people inside a home in the city’s Inner Richmond neighborhood. The stabbing was reported at about 7:30 a.m. in the 600 block of Funston Avenue. Officers arrived and found an elderly man in the doorway with stab wounds to his forearm and hands, police Lt. Troy Dangerfield said.

They went into the home and found an elderly woman upstairs bleeding profusely from stab wounds to her upper body,Dangerfield said. The wounds appeared to be life-threatening, he said. As they attempted to pull that victim to safety, the officers were confronted by the suspect, a man in his 30s, who was holding a knife in each hand and waving them over his head, Dangerfield said.

An officer used a beanbag weapon against the armed man but it was not effective, Dangerfield said. Another officer then fired a gun at the suspect, hitting him. The two elderly victims and the suspect were taken to a hospital. The suspect’s injuries are considered life-threatening. A third victim, a woman in her 30s, was found hiding inside the home.

She was not hurt.”It’s clear this guy had a serious intent to injure,” Dangerfield said of the suspect. A neighbor who declined to give her name said she heard screams, then saw someone lying on the sidewalk in a pool of blood. As of 9 a.m., Funston Avenue was closed between Balboa and Cabrillo streets, and Police Chief Greg Suhr was at the scene.”There’s cops everywhere,” the neighbor said.
