Suspect in South of Market shooting shot by police, arrested in Southern California

A suspect in a South of Market shooting that injured one person Monday was shot by California Highway Patrol officers and taken into custody in Riverside County early Tuesday morning, according to police.

The suspect, whose identity has not yet been released, had fled in a vehicle after allegedly shooting a 19-year-old man from behind in the lobby of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation building at 13th and Mission streets around 3:50 p.m.

The victim, who was shot in the upper torso, was taken to the hospital with injuries that were considered life threatening and remained in critical condition Tuesday.

Police put out an alert to law enforcement, and on Monday night were notified that the vehicle had been detected by an automated license plate reader in Southern California.

California Highway Patrol officers found the suspect’s vehicle abandoned on U.S. Interstate Highway 10 in the area of Blythe, California around 3:10 a.m. A short time later they located the suspect and shot him, according to San Francisco police.

No CHP officers were injured in the shooting.

The suspect was taken into custody and is being held by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, which had assisted in the search for the suspect and is now investigating the shooting.

Deputy Mike Vasquez, a spokesman for the department, confirmed that the suspect survived the shooting but said he could not provide information on his condition or identity.
