St. Paul’s Elementary School in San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood is on lockdown this morning because of an officer-involved shooting nearby, police said. The shooting occurred shortly before 7 a.m. in the area of Church and Valley streets, police Officer Gordon Shyy said. Shyy said police are still sorting out the details of what happened, but that shots were fired and two male suspects have been taken into custody.
He said no officers had been shot but that one had suffered minor injuries. A man answering the phone at St. Paul’s Catholic Church around 7:30 a.m. said both the church and the school were on lockdown. School personnel were in the process of alerting parents about the situation, he said. Shyy said shortly before 8 a.m. that parents were not yet being allowed to drop their children off at school. “We just want to make sure the area is safe,” he said.
