CHP officer injured, suspect shot in SF’s Oceanview neighborhood

A man who led law enforcement on a multi-county car chase is in critical condition and a police officer was also injured after the incident ended in a crash in San Francisco on Tuesday afternoon, according to officials.

The late afternoon incident, which also included an officer opening fire, occurred in the Oceanview neighborhood and sent a California Highway Patrol officer to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. It was unclear if the unidentified suspect, who was also transported to the hospital, was in critical condition due to a gunshot wound or a collision.

The incident took place just before 4 p.m. and began in San Mateo County when a Vehicle Task Force Unit, which included three different law enforcement agency personnel, began pursuing what they believed was a stolen Honda.

The chase ended at Montana Street and Capitol Avenue in the Oceanview neighborhood, which is just across the San Francisco County line. It remains unclear which officer fired a weapon, what prompted the discharge,r how many officers fired shots or how many shots were fired.

“The suspect has life-threatening injuries,” said San Francisco police spokesperson Sgt. Michael Andraychak, who could not confirm if he was armed. “I haven’t confirmed if it’s a result of the shooting.”

He also said it was unclear if the suspect’s car was moving when the discharge occurred.

San Francisco Fire Department spokesperson Jonathan Baxter previously said the injured officer was with the CHP and based out of San Mateo County.

Gregory Elarms II, who said he saw the incident unfold, posted a video to Facebook from the scene. Elarms said he knew the victim and called him “Notorious.”

“The person they shot didn’t have a gun or anything,” he said in the Facebook video. “He wasn’t a threat.”
