A suspect who was shot during a home invasion robbery in San Francisco’s Bayview District on Tuesday died later that day, according to police and medical examiner’s officials. The robbery was reported at about 2:25 a.m. Tuesday in the first block of Elmira Street, just south of Industrial Street. Authorities arrived to find two men and a woman suffering from gunshot wounds and transported them to San Francisco General Hospital.

Investigators determined that three suspects had broken into the home, which was occupied by a 37-year-old man, his 31-year-old wife and their two young children, police said. When the couple confronted the suspects, they were both shot. The woman was shot in the chest and suffered life-threatening injuries while her husband was shot in the leg and is expected to survive, police said. The children were unharmed.

During an altercation, one of the suspects was also shot and succumbed to his injuries later that day. He has been identified by the medical examiner’s office as 24-year-old San Francisco resident James Smith. The other two suspects fled and had not been found as of this morning, police spokesman Sgt. Dennis Toomer said.
