View Larger Map

Police arrested a suspect Thursday morning in a shooting in the Outer Mission after a standoff with a SWAT team around his RV, police Sgt. Danielle Newman said.

The shooting occurred early Thursday morning about 3:10 a.m., police Sgt. Eric O'Neal said. When police officers arrived to the scene of Alemany Boulevard and Farragut Avenue, they were able to speak with the victim, who sustained a bullet wound to his leg.

Police said later Thursday afternoon that the victim had been meeting an acquaintance when the suspect asked them to leave the area and stop talking outside his residence. He then reportedly pulled out the gun and shot the victim in the leg.

He was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive, O'Neal said.

The 36-year-old victim was able to tell police that the person who shot him was nearby, living in an RV parked in the 2800 block of Alemany Boulevard, Newman said.

The suspect barricaded himself into his RV and would not respond to police efforts to contact him. The SWAT team and a hostage negotiator were then called to the scene and about 8:30 a.m., the negotiator was able to persuade the suspect to come out of the RV, Newman said. He was then taken into custody.

Police did not release his identification as of Thursday morning, but he faces charges of attempted murder, Newman said.
