SFPD remembers Officer Tuvera 10 years after shooting

The San Francisco Police Department is honoring the memory of 28-year-old Officer Bryan Tuvera Thursday, 10 years after he was killed while on duty.

On Dec. 22 2006 Tuvera was killed while trying to apprehend a wanted felon. A foot chase ended in a residential garage, where the suspect opened fire on Tuvera, injuring him seriously. One of Tuvera’s colleagues opened fire, and the suspect was pronounced dead on the scene.

Tuvera passed away on the morning of Dec. 23.

A memorial garden was dedicated to Officer Tuvera at McCoppin Square Park in 2012.

Those who wish to pay their respects to Tuvera may do so with the SFPD at Taraval Police Station, at 2345 24th ave. from 6 to 9:00 p.m. on Dec 22.
