At approximately 2:20 pm SFPD officers responded to the 100 block of Bosworth Street regarding a person armed with a firearm who entered a residence. The person who discovered the suspect was able to exit the residence and contacted the police. Officers arrived on scene and made contact with the armed suspect who had refused to comply with officers for approximately 3 and a half hours. Additional SFPD resources and SFFD medics were on scene to assist with the incident. As officers were attempting to negotiate with the suspect, an officer-involved shooting occurred. The suspect was transported to the hospital. Despite the life-saving efforts of the emergency responders and medical staff the suspect succumbed to his injuries and was declared deceased.

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).
