The 29-year-old woman who was killed Thursday by police in the Bayview has been identified as Jessica Williams, according to the Medical Examiner’s Office.
Williams, a San Francisco resident, died at San Francisco General Hospital after she was shot by police between Helena and Elmira streets, according to officials.
Around 9:30 a.m. Thursday, two Bayview officers came upon a stolen car in the Silver Terrace area, just east of Bayshore Boulevard, according to police. Williams, who was reportedly driving the car, attempted to flee and crashed into a truck.
As the officers attempted to remove Williams from the vehicle, a witness told police there was a “back and forth” between Williams and the officers, and Williams was shot once by one of the officers shortly before 10 a.m., according to then-Police Chief Greg Suhr.
Williams was taken to SFGH, where she was pronounced dead, according to police.
Shortly after the police shooting, Suhr tendered his resignation, which was announced at City Hall by Mayor Ed Lee.
The Medical Examiner’s Office has conducted an autopsy, and the final report is pending completion.
