A man was shot by police in San Francisco’s Hunters Point neighborhood on Friday night after he intentionally rammed their car, a police spokesman said today. Officers had responded at 9:21 p.m. to a report of a carjacking in the 100 block of Jerrold Avenue, police spokesman Sgt. Daryl Fong said.
Plainclothes officers in an unmarked car spotted the suspect vehicle, but as they tried to pull it over, the driver intentionally rammed the officers’ vehicle, Fong said. One of the officers in the vehicle shot at the suspect’s car, striking him. The suspect tried to drive away but crashed into a parked car a short distance away in the 100 block of Northridge Road, where other responding officers took him into custody, Fong said.
The suspect, a 44-year-old man whose name has not yet been released, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are not considered life-threatening, according to Fong. The officers were not injured, and have been put on paid administrative leave while the shooting is investigated, as is standard
procedure, he said.
