The man who was shot by police in the Mission District is suspected of various charges including assault with a deadly weapon and battery on a peace officer, police said Wednesday.
Jamaica Hampton, a 24-year-old man from Sacramento, was booked on suspicion of the charges Saturday at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.
While Hampton remains at the hospital in critical condition, he is no longer in police custody.
The District Attorney’s Office has not formally charged him in connection with the incident pending further investigation.
Hampton allegedly attacked two officers with a glass bottle before being shot near 23rd and Capp streets at around 8:34 a.m. on Saturday, police said.
The confrontation started because Hampton matched the description of a hot prowl burglary suspect, police said. But Hampton was not booked on suspicion of burglary.
Hampton was booked on suspicion of two counts each of assault with a deadly weapon, battery with injury on a peace officer, battery resulting in serious injury and resisting arrest.
His mother first identified him as the man who was shot by police when she joined protesters Tuesday evening outside Mission Police Station.
Tana Hampton questioned whether police needed to use lethal force. Advocates say he was shot at eight times and struck in the legs three times.
Jamaica Hampton grew up in foster care and struggled with addiction. His story was recently featured in a video by a social services group that helps people with recovery.
In the video, Hampton said he wanted to help youth and become a social worker.
Police have yet to release a detailed description of the events that led up to the shooting.
The San Francisco Police Department is expected to hold a town hall meeting to address the incident within 10 days of the shooting, but has not yet confirmed a date or time for the event.
The department has also yet to name the officers involved.
