Conditions improve for CHP officer and suspect in Oceanview shooting incident

The conditions of a car theft suspect and a California Highway Patrol officer both injured Tuesday following a pursuit into San Francisco have improved.

The incident unfolded around 3:30 p.m. in the Oceanview neighborhood and resulted in an officer firing his weapon, though the nature of the officer’s injuries were not released.

“He’s been upgraded to what they call ‘fair condition,’” CHP spokesperson Vu Williams said of the San Mateo-based CHP officer.

The suspect, identified as Ansar El Mohammed, has improved from critical to serious condition and remains hospitalized, said Rachael Kagan, a spokesperson with San Francisco Department of Public Health. Kagan confirmed late Wednesday that the officer had been released from the hospital.

Few details have been released about the 3:30 p.m. incident other than what police said at the scene near the intersection of where the chase ended at Montana Street and Capitol Avenue in the Oceanview neighborhood. It remains unclear which officer fired a weapon, what prompted the discharge, how many officers fired shots or how many shots were fired.

According to police, the chase 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.Crime
