Suspect killed by SF police is Oakland man, 26

Police officers were involved in a fatal shooting of a 26-year-old Oakland man that took place after a vehicle burglary Tuesday night near AT&T Park, where the Giants were playing the Washington Nationals in the National League Division Series.

The incident marked the second time in two weeks that police were involved in a fatal shooting.

On Sept. 25, a man who allegedly stole an SUV in the East Bay led multiple law enforcement agencies on a chase through three counties, eventually crashing the vehicle in San Francisco's Financial District. He was killed by officers after allegedly firing at bystanders, injuring one, and refusing to drop his weapon or cooperate with police.

On Tuesday, officers who were assigned to monitor the area of AT&T Park saw a suspicious vehicle casing other cars near Jack London Alley and Bryant Street about 9 p.m., Officer Gordon Shyy said.

Officers watched the suspects emerge from their car and commit a vehicle burglary on a Mercedes SUV parked on Jack London Alley, Shyy said.

When the officers approached the vehicle to make contact with the suspects, they noticed that the driver, identified Wednesday as Oshaine Evans, had a handgun, police said.

One of the officers ordered Evans to drop the handgun, but he refused, forcing the officer to discharge his firearm in defense of himself and others, Shyy said.

Evans and a rear passenger in the vehicle were struck by the gunfire, according to Shyy.

The front passenger of the vehicle attempted to flee on foot but was quickly apprehended by officers on Bryant Street.

The two suspects hit by gunfire were taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where Evans died from his injuries, according to Shyy.

The second suspect is expected to survive, Shyy said.

Evans' firearm was recovered at the location of the shooting, as was all of the stolen property from the Mercedes SUV, police said.

The suspect who was not taken to the hospital was instead taken to Southern Police Station for interviewing by investigators.

The officer who discharged his gun will be on 10-day administrative leave, which is standard practice, according to Shyy.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing, Shyy said.

No other injuries were reported, and the baseball game was not affected by the police activity.
