Bayview District Officer-Involved Shooting 23-091

At approximately 2:53 P.M. SFPD Officers who were working in plain clothes were arresting a male suspect at Catalina Street and Fairfax Avenue. During the arrest, a second male, unrelated to the arrest, approached and engaged these officers. Two uniformed officers arrived in a marked patrol vehicle and contacted the second male, who was armed with what appeared to be a firearm. During the encounter with uniformed officers, an officer-involved shooting occurred. The male who was armed was struck by gunfire. Officers rendered aid and summoned medics to the scene. The male was transported by medics to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. 

Despite lifesaving efforts of emergency responders and medical staff, the male was declared deceased at the hospital.   

This incident is being investigated by the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office; the San Francisco Police Department Investigative Services Division (ISD); the SFPD Internal Affairs Division (IAD); the Department of Police Accountability (DPA); and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME).    

All information is preliminary and could be subject to change. This remains an open and active investigation.  Additional information will be released as it becomes available. As part of SFPD’s commitment to transparency and accountability, a town hall meeting regarding this officer-involved shooting will be held within ten days.    

Anyone with information is asked to contact the SFPD at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD. You may remain anonymous.
