SF police to hold community meeting about fatal shooting

San Francisco police are expected to hold a community meeting Monday to discuss the fatal police-involved shooting of a carjacking suspect Thursday morning in the Financial District. The meeting and press conference will update the public on the early morning shooting that occurred at the intersection of Battery and California streets. Police hold such meetings after every police shooting where someone is injured. The last such meeting, in March, was led by Police Chief Greg Suhr and detailed events surrounding the fatal police shooting of Alejandro Nieto in Bernal Heights Park. Monday’s event starts at noon on Pier 1 along The Embarcadero. Thursday's three-car crash and subsequent shooting began across the Bay in Richmond when a man carjacked a woman. After a high-speed chase through Marin and San Francisco counties, the stolen Cadillac Escalade evaded police. But when it drove the wrong way up Battery, it flipped and collided with another car, finally coming to a rest on its side. After bystanders rushed to the SUV to help the driver, he allegedly started firing a gun at them. One bystander was injured, but not critically wounded. When police caught up with the suspect again, they repeatedly ordered him to drop his weapon and exit the vehicle. Finally, fearing for their own safety and the safety of the many bystanders, police opened fire and killed the suspect.Bay Area NewsCrimeCrime & CourtsPolice shootingSan Francisco Police
