Homicide Investigation Leads to Officer Involved Shooting 18-030

On Friday, February 16, 2018 at approximately 6:28PM, SFPD officers responded to a shooting homicide at Oak and Stanyan Streets. Two adult males were shot and one died from his injuries.

Following that incident, a silver Toyota 4 Runner was taken in a carjacking. Through the course of an investigation, it was determined that the Toyota was stolen by the homicide suspect. The SFPD Homicide Detail issued a crime alert listing the suspect and vehicle description.

On Saturday, February 17, 2018 at approximately 12:13 AM, uniformed SFPD officers in a marked vehicle located the stolen Toyota on Alameda Street near De Haro Street. The Toyota was unoccupied and parked behind a recreational vehicle. Officers determined that the RV was occupied and contacted the occupants to conduct a wellbeing check. Multiple persons exited the RV. Officers determined that one person remained inside the vehicle.

Officers made contact with the subject who remained in the RV and an officer involved shooting occurred.

The officers established a perimeter and requested the Tactical Unit and Crisis/Hostage Negotiation Team. The occupant of the RV did not respond to officers’ orders to exit the vehicle.

At approximately 2:20AM, the occupant exited the RV and was taken into custody. He was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

At approximately 3:05AM, the SFPD Tactical Unit determined that there were no additional occupants in the RV.

The occupant from the RV is the person of interest in the homicide and carjacking from the earlier incident at Oak Street and Stanyan Street. Following an evaluation at the hospital, he was taken to the SFPD Homicide Detail for an interview. No one involved was injured by gunfire in the officer involved shooting incident.

This is an active and ongoing investigation in the early stages. Investigations are being conducted by the SFPD Homicide Detail, the SF District Attorney’s Office, the Department of Police Accountability and the SFPD Internal Affairs Unit.

Additional information will be released as it becomes available. As part of our commitment towards transparency and accountability, a town hall meeting regarding the officer involved shooting will be held within ten days.
