On May 11, 2018 at approximately 12:59 AM, uniformed San Francisco Police officers in a marked police car were investigating an auto burglary near Steiner Street and Geary Boulevard.  One suspect was detained at that location and the second suspect fled on foot to the area of O’Farrell and Webster Streets where he entered a parked vehicle. The suspect fled in the vehicle, a white Hyundai sedan.  On the 1500 block of O’Farrell Street a series of events occurred including collisions between the suspect vehicle and two marked SFPD radio cars and an officer involved shooting.

The suspect vehicle fled the scene and was pursued to the area of Polk and McAllister Streets where it stopped inside Civic Center Plaza.  The suspect driver was taken into custody.

No one was struck by gunfire in this incident.  The suspect driver was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.   An officer that was injured in the O’Farrell Street incident was treated and released at the scene.

This is an active and ongoing investigation in the early stages. Separate investigations are being conducted by the San Francisco Police Homicide Detail, the SFPD Internal Affairs Division, the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office Independent Investigations Bureau and the Department of Police Accountability.
