Carjacking suspect shot and killed while being detained by police

San Francisco police shot and killed a person after an alleged attempted carjacking Saturday night.

Shortly before 11:30 p.m., officers responded to a report of an attempted carjacking with a knife in the area of Market and Gough streets, police said Sunday.

Officers located and pursued a suspect to Otis Street, where they attempted to detain them.

Police have released few details of what happened next, saying only that “an officer-involved shooting occurred.”

The suspect was struck by bullets and pronounced dead at the scene. The shooting was captured on an officer’s body-worn camera but that footage has not yet been released.

Police said they recovered a knife at the scene.

The suspect’s identity has not yet been released. This case is being investigated by several city law enforcement and legal agencies, and a town hall meeting will be held within ten days to address the shooting.

This is a developing news story and will be updated. Bay City News Service contributed to this report.
