U.S. Park Police shoot person near Aquatic Park

A U.S. Park Police officer shot a person in San Francisco on Tuesday night, according to authorities.

The person was shot at around 9:31 p.m. near Aquatic Park and taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to the San Francisco Police Department.

Another person was detained and has been booked on suspicion of possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm with a large capacity magazine.

Police said a firearm with an extended magazine was recovered at the scene.

The SFPD and District Attorney’s Office Independent Investigations Bureau are investigating the shooting and San Francisco police were handling media queries regarding the incident.

It not clear whether the U.S. Park Police will hold a community meeting to provide further details on the shooting, as is the practice of the SFPD.

It is also not clear that the officer involved wore a body camera, as the agency reportedly does not have a body-worn camera program.

This is the first police shooting in San Francisco since SFPD Officer Joshua Cabillo shot 28-year-old Oliver Barcenas in North Beach in June. Barcenas survived the shooting and faced gun charges in the case.

The last shooting to make the news in the Aquatic Park area was the August 2016 fatal shooting of Calvin Riley, 20, who was playing Pokemon Go with friends in the park when he was killed by unknown assailants. That homicide remains unsolved.
