Police Fatally Shoot Fleeing Suspect In San Francisco Bayview

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — San Francisco police Sunday announced that investigators have recovered a gun they believe was used by a man killed Saturday in an officer-involved shooting near a Bayview train platform.

The man had been detained by patrol officers conducting a fare inspection on a Municipal Transportation Agency light rail stop at Third Street and Palou Avenue about 4:45 p.m., police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said.

KCBS’ Bob Melrose Reports:

The officers were stationed in the area as part of an increased police presence to respond to recent shootings in the neighborhood, Andraychak said.

The 19-year-old man ran from the officers and allegedly pulled out a handgun and shot at them as they chased him on foot, police said.

At least one of the officers returned fire and wounded the suspect.

He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 7:01 p.m., police said.

No officers or witnesses were injured in the shooting.

Amateur video footage of the exchange showed that a passerby picked up the suspect’s handgun in the aftermath of the shootout and took it from the area before investigators were able to establish a crime scene, police said.

With the help of witnesses, police were able to identify the individual who took the gun and retrieved it Sunday afternoon, Andraychak said.

Police have not released the name of the man who was killed, citing an ongoing investigation.

    Lets see, he ran from the Police and fired a gun at them. Sounds like a guy with a death wish who got what he deserved. I am more than OK with one less predator loose on the streets. Well done, SFPD.

    1. Lisa says:

      MR RAY, YOU ARE VERY RIGHT. IF A 19 YR OLD MAN (ALLEGEDLY) SHOOT AT POLICE THEY SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SHOOT YOU 5TIMES AND WATCH YOU BLEED OUT LIKE A ANIMAL! THAT’S VERY HUMANE OF YOU RAY! YOU SHOULD RUN FOR GETTING THIS COUNTRY TOGETHER. *im being VERY facetious* WOW! unbelievable the things ignorant people say!

      1. Matt says:

        why can’t they fire back? He just shot at them, trying to kill them. What are they suppose to do? Go back and forth when one fires back at each other? You shoot too kill if someone fires at you.

      2. Lisa says:

        @ Lisa is a hypocrite, sweetie when i’m being paid to use my correct punctuation and grammar that’s when I’LL do so. We are on a f-ing blog spot!!! NOT read my essay and critic it.com. All I said was use your spell check if you are going in on someone about grammar! i never claimed to be a English major! THE FACT IS THERE WILL NEVER BE ANY RIGHT IN SHOOTING A WHITE, BLACK, PURPLE, OR ANY KIND OF BEING 5TIMES AND WATCH THEM DIE on the street! so u miss English teacher STFU and go play on your local express way

      3. LOL says:

        Yep, sounds plausible that they’d have Fire and Rescue there immediately after the shooting to save him from “bleeding out like an animal.” They should’ve deployed a stealth VTOL medic chopper to the scene as soon as they shot him, a 15 second response time would’ve been sufficient.

      4. Lisa's a moron says:

        That’s right Lisa, everybody is ignorant except you.

      5. Diane Matcheck says:

        They didn’t watch him bleed out; they took him to a hospital.

    2. 4DUMB DIANE& the racicts says:

      For all of you who say that it was justifiable… maybe 1OR 2shot can be justified IF he fired@ them 1st. They shot him several times stood over him and gave him a few more 4 the fun of it WHILE he was down so, how in the f#!k can u say any1 deserves 2 be punished like that? I’m totally for the death penalty BUT, its up to the court of law to make that decision NOT some trigger happy cop. &why are we all passing judgment like we are the court’s and have all the evidence here in front of us? I’ve heard of reasonable doubt & last i checked you have to have a jury of your peers to hear the whole case b4 we just say “yup he black so he did it! he deserve 2 be put down!”. What happen to innocent until proven guilty? *guess its the other way around for black’s* I think allot of ppl are missing the point here. I’m not saying that kid didn’t deserve to be punished because if you do the crime you do the time! I’m saying that was cold how they went overkill on him.

      1. mythreeCents says:

        “They shot him several times stood over him and gave him a few more 4 the fun of it WHILE he was down so, how in the f#!k can u say any1 deserves 2 be punished like that”?

        Sounds gangster huh…guess its only acceptable if their pants were baggy and their hats turned sideways huh. Don’t blame the police for doing their job, thats why tax payers pay their taxes. Money well spent.

        So easy to blame it on Race huh. When will the locals start preaching to their own.

      2. mythreeCentsDONTMAKESENCE says:

        @My3centdontmeansh!t, Hope that ganster with the baggy pants& the hat turned to the side never get a hold of you…u know when they “puff puff pass” and watch ROOTS you could be in big trouble!….OKNOW!! you don’t believe in GOD so no need 4 prayer! SOOOO some1 may be applauding your death 2! They’ll say umm….1less racist, judgmental atheist duch bag gone! Thaaaannnk U! I think the internet would be more peaceful.

  2. mechanic says:

    It would have been the exact same crowd, even if it were a “work day” in that neighbor- HOOD.

  3. Shinelle says:

    U white ppl need to get outta here wit that black kid shoots at police over a transfer? Come man yall racists as hell as so are the police if u scared of ppl like that dont be a police officer yall got some nerve

    1. Name says:

      Why would he run from the police if they only wanted to talk to him about a transfer? Maybe it is because he had something illegal on him ( A gun).

      And learn to speak with proper grammer. No one likes the gangster talk.

      1. Lisa says:

        READ THE REPLY TO MR. RAY HILL. IT GOES FOR U2. I MEANT YOU TOO. HOPE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THE GRAMMAR. IT’S GRAMMAR NOT GRAMMER. NO ONE LIKES A PERSON WHO THINKS THEY ARE A KNOW IT ALL AND REALLY DON’T KNOW HOW TO SPELL! PS use spell check next time you trying to go in on some1!

      2. Dennis Nichols says:

        Actually it is “you as well” But that is ok, the spelling and grammar police only come into play when there is no other argument.

        To all those who attack based on spelling and grammar … FAIL

      3. hank says:

        oh tay.

    2. Sam Perez says:

      Why are you assuming that all the comments are from white people? You are the racist one; you can’t tell a person’s race based on a name or a comment. Learn how to read, write and spell you f-ing idiot.

      1. Lisa says:

        I predict this comment is from a gay man. You come off very racist! You are right you cant tell a persons race by a comment but you can tell if they are a DUCH! My Granny always said “its better to stay quiet and let people think your a fool then to open your mouth and let people know your a fool!

      2. Larry says:

        Hahah Sam “Perez”… your such an Idiot No one really believes Your Hispanic or that your last name is Perez… I love to here White trash Spew there Racist Opinions….

      3. al says:

        The united states of America.full of pathetic humans.look at yourselves.no morals.hypocrites,judging others,no balls to stand for the constitution.pathetic groveling lambs

    3. Blender says:

      1. @the lovely diane says:

My bother is gay and he loves gaga and bubble baths SO STFU ! and that’s 1 hell of a attack for saying that about perz hilton! there is nothing wrong with being gay…if i was a man i would be gay 2

    4. Lisa says:

Are we here 4 grammar checks or a essay? As long as u understood that i know that you are a racist gay man that’s all that matters! GOODBYE DOUCH U R SOOO NOT WORTH IT!

    5. Diane Matcheck says:

      Lisa, it’s a little much for you to rant against supposed racists while you attack someone for being (you assume) gay.

    6. hank says:

      who be your baby daddy?

  4. Zack Debarco says:

    Why were the cops there in the first place? Are there cops statiioned at other
    M
    UNI platforms aon a regular basis? They were there because of the idiots !
    Those very idiots are now fabricating what they supposedly saw and probably had a hand in getting rid of the gun, if there was one. Even if there is a problem with this shooting, I am tired of the riff raff, who don’t work and are
    mostly ex-cons themselves getting all the air time. If decent hard working folks witnessed something I want them interviewed because no matter which way this goes, the more reliable witnessed the better to try and find our what really happened.

  5. ispeakthetruth says:

    the police in SF are setting example to the blacks still left in the city. we shoot 1st and cover it up while we take a paid vacation. basically, if your black and is not part of the working class your part of a old problem being exterminated. SF is now a white & asian city.

  6. ispeakthetruth says:

    3rd & palou has had notoriously criminal activity the last 40+ years. it is the last 3-4 block radius blacks still claim or have left for black owned businesses.

  7. mechanic says:

    “SF is no a white & asian city” ….. and your problem with that is ……?????

    1. ispeakthetruth says:

      SF was once one of the thriving diverse cities in America. Along w/ positive always comes the negative, reaganomics w/ drugs turned SF into a war zone in the late 80s an early 90s. So the working class blacks began to leave. The Asian population grew along w/ the gay population. The city reconstructed bad neighborhoods, placing the poor minorities in other cities like Antioch, Richmond, Vallejo, Sacramento, Stockton, Fairfield, Modesto, Merced (which have seen an increase in crime in the last 20 years every year). so instead of correcting the problem, they just gave the problem to another county along w/ a boat load of cash. Now the mission district, which was all mexican businesses, now asian business has taken over and retail giants. The real etnic diversity in the city has taken a hit from the ignorant violence and self-destruction. Maybe it was by “design” maybe it was by coincidence, too be determined.

  8. ChiCaliK says:

    I’ve never been able to fully understand why police officers get paid for basically being suspended while being under suspicion for wrong doing. For everyone else, that’s called a VACATION!

    I can understand them being taken off of the streets, but they need to at least be reassigned to office duty.

  9. RichD says:

    Everyone is quick to criticize and berate the police until they need their protection and services.

  10. red bull says:

    hey i dont care if the police kill all criminals just like they do in other countries. my problem is them denying they shoot to kill. if they setting examples for other criminals, if you break the law and we have the opportunity to kill you, we will take you out.

    they also need to advertise ccw’s enrollment too.

    1. red bull says:

      at the same time police need set example for cops who abuse their power as well. if he didn’t shoot back or have a gun. they need to be stripped back down to a civilian and punished that way.

  11. Zack Debarco says:

    Why in the world would anybody want to be a cop in that hellhole? The people don’t want you and there is no community support. I say pull the cops out and put them elsewhere in the city. Let these folks deal with themsleves and don’t waste any public funds to pick up the dead and wounded.

  12. Kristen says:

    Why us it just cause the police officer have the right to shoot somebody 5 times don’t mean it was justice even if he did or didn’t. Have a gun that. Wash not right at all and just cause was black or not why do the race card always. Have to be put. In place would it made it different. If it was a White man Hood or not dnt. Nobody should. Die like tha

    1. Lisa says:

      I agree Kristen is sauced up!

    2. stacey mitchell says:

      NO ONE SHOULD pull a damn gun out and shoot at the police! SO yeah he got what he deserved! If they did not take his ass down he could of killed one of them or someone innocent. Learn the law!!

  13. Lisa says:

    I COULD JUST IMAGINE THE CONVERSATION IN YOUR HOUSE HOLD. I PRAY YOUR NOT RAISING AND TEACHING CHILDREN THIS FILTH! “wonderful hardworking people” WE ALL KNOW WHAT YOU REALLY WANTED 2 SAY! IF YOU SAW THE ENTIRE VIDEO I WONDER WOULD YOU STILL THINK KEEP POOPING THEM? THERE IS NO RIGHT IN WATCHING ANY CHILD OF GOD BLEED OUT ALONE LAYING ON A GROUND!!!!!!!!! im praying 4u and him as i type

    1. Mike Ortiz says:

      So what would you do if you were a officer and some one is shooting back at you? Don’t play the race card. Bottom line he had a gun.

    2. mythreeCents says:

      Yep, still think the same. Go bleed your heart somewhere else. This punk kid go off too easy. They should have poured vinegar on him while he bled out on the sidewalk to add to the pain. Still wouldn’t be a match for the pain he caused in Washington.

      Save your prayers for someone that cares. I prefer a non-prophet lifestyle

  14. Dennis Nichols says:

    Want to see the aftermath?

    http://www.injusticeeverywhere.com/?p=4456

    The police were A: Justified and B: Had medical help there quickly.

    I am a hard critic of the police, but they were justified this time and righteous.

  15. vaga says:

    Give me a break. When is the cop suppose to fire? AFTER taking a bullet?

  16. Lions den man says:

    Dont stroll around the hood with a gun you will get shot. What young person doesnt know that silly man. Please dont make excuses for sin ful behavior. Hell awaits the un-repentant person.
    Ask Jesus to forgive you if you are really sorry for what you have done. Otherwise there will be a fearful day of judgement for you.

  17. the man says:

    he deserved to die suspect in other shootins too? yea hes toast.

  18. Dave M says:

    One less dirt bag in a neighborhood full of them – at least now he can’t ruin the lives of some of the good people left in that area. Some idiots need to be a victim of a crime before they realize that the thugs they defend by bad mouthing the police are at the end of the day…worthless thugs.

  19. Peace and Love says:

    http://www.kirotv.com/news/28579627/detail.html

    He Allegelly SHOt and killed a 19 pregnant female in seattle a few days ago

  20. Punishedtentimesfold says:

    You should be ashamed to say something so senseless. How can you say something so heartless? Maybe you should think about this, Those men and women(police)you call the Law are put in place to uphold the Law not take it into their own hands. No one deserves to die like that over a bus fare….Hell no one deserves to die like that period.

    1. Diane Matcheck says:

      If the story is accurate that he pulled a gun and shot at police, then shooting him was justified.

    2. mythreeCents says:

      They took the law in their own hands alright, and saved Washington State thousands of dollars in court cost and jail fees for this piece of trash. More police need to do the same. Keep cleaning up the neighborhoods one bullet at a time.

  21. Ron James says:

    http://www.kirotv.com/news/28579627/detail.html

    Ok race baiters …..this guy killed a pregnant black girl maybe wait next time to pass judgement good job SFPD!

  22. LA says:

    wow so much hate in here….

  23. Anti Thugs says:

    Black shooters should learn once and for all – when you shoot at cops, you will be shot at by cops – and stop pretending to be surprised. More importantly, if you are a criminal or a thug, tell your family members so they can stop pretending that you are an “innocent” person after you are shot.

  24. Google says:

    whew, another victim of the police force. There should be rules that prevent the police to shoot at criminals that shoot at the police. Those criminals should be allowed to roam around and terrorize their neighborhoods. SF

  25. JaneQPublic says:

    If the deceased IS the same guy that murdered a 19-year old pregnant woman AND if he fired at SF police, it sounds like he may have vowed “not to be taken alive”. IF he was the killer, then good riddance…..

  26. Kristen says:

    Okay in the report did they say a police got hurt? In the shooting that they said the man had a gun. No police wash hurt so that mean he didn’t have a gun he was a young. Black man running from them so they thought to justifey their action. Was to kill him
    Point blank they didn’t have to shot him 5 times it could have been once. Now I’m reading that he killed a. Pregrant woman i dnt knw if tha was true they just cover it up. So they won’t get into trouble for all of y’all who said that what he get the police did the right thing watch the video he was laying down bleeding to death and they shoot him again. U cnt judge anybody only god can remember that

  27. Lisa says:

    Hi, this is Lisa again. I’ve changed my mind. I’m glad he got popped.

    1. THE REAL LIISA says:

      so fake! don’t use my name and put fake comments! im not glade any1 got popped DUCH!

      1. Name says:

        @ the real lisa. I don’t believe that you are the real Lisa.

  28. Zack Debarco says:

    How come the heading now is not: GUN FOUND !!! ???
    The media is conducting the classic Hearst style yellow journalism trying to
    drum up anti-police discord. I am no fan of SFPD but they have a tough job to do, especially in this neighborhood. I hope they get the lapel cameras that
    Oakland has.

  29. Mark D. says:

    To all you people who are quick to blame the police and defend the suspect I hope you know how stupid you now look. A criminal, who has murdered before, tried to murder the men who willingly put themselves in danger every day for all of us (including the idiots who were screaming “pig”) and he paid with his life. Good, I will not shed a single tear. He took a chance and he lost. He was evil and that was all he was ever going to be and we are better off without him. Thank god no officer of innocent person was hurt. And to the media, shame on you for trying to stir up police hatred.

  30. witzundlachen says:

    Good Shot!!!

  31. Ron says:

    So they are planning a protest against police brutality today in the bayview??? Are these same protesters coming to Seattle to support the 19 year old black woman gunned down by this “fleeing suspect” ????? Yea exactly I doubt it ! next story

  32. Ron says:

    http://www.seattlepi.com/local/article/Pimp-shot-to-death-linked-to-Tanaya-Gilbert-1470709.php

    Does anyone know what time the protest starts for the Murderer ? and the guy convicted of pimping a 13 year old

    1. mechanic says:

      Wow! This article link should change the minds of anyone who thinks this “victim” of Police Brutality was just an unfortunate boy! What a pure POS this guy was. The cops who got him should be given meritorious conduct medals. Please take the time to read the Seattle newspaper account if you haven’t already done that. Kenneth Harding was a truly rotten, bad, apple. No doubt about it!

  33. TheVigilante says:

    LIVE LIKE A THUG, DIE LIKE A THUG…
    Good riddance.

  34. Lisa says:

    After reading what this 19 YEAR OLD KID did in Washington, I now believe that he was rightfully killed by the SFPD! GOOD WORK PO PO!

    1. mechanic says:

      We all love you now, Lisa! We knew you would come around!

    2. The original Lisa says:

      This is not the real Lisa! I am the original Lisa! I DON”T CARE WHAT THE KID DID TO OTHER PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON! HE DID NOT DESERVE TO DIE BY BEING SHOT BY POLICE!

      1. Mark D. says:

        Then he should not have fired on the police. Anyone who shoots at the police should be stopped. If that means he dies then oh well….

      2. mythreeCents says:

        You are right, it was too quick. There was a better more painful way. And publicize it, sell tickets and pay off the debt. Call it Doing Dirtbags for Debt. An HBO special.

  35. Bob Jones says:

    Yea… Good thing they killed the suspect for not having bus fare. This is what we pay cops for in the USA.. to kill suspects. We can save money because we don’t need trials anymore. (all sarcasm)

    1. mythreeCents says:

      Its ok Bob, time made you sound like an idiot not me. Yeah this was all about bus fare. Puff puff pass…

    2. hope my white buds donthinklikeU says:

      This unbelievable!!! Some of these comments!!!WOW!! This make me look @ my friends from work way different now! These white ppl on here FOOL-IN! look how free they on here like “yea yea off them all lets get them 1bullet at at time! Some ish will never change!

  36. mythreeCents says:

    If you want to know why we are such a hopeless society, just turn up the volume on the video and listen to the garbage pile of onlookers and their ignorant racist comments and lack of respect for law enforcement. So if you are white and act this this you are called trailer trash, and if your black its just gangster. No matter the color, its just a damn shame this is what our community sounds like.

    1. mechanic says:

      Ain’t that the sad truth! What a shame. I can’t believe they are even part of our so-called “society”. Nothing but sub-humans. Black, white, red, yellow, or green; there’s no excuse for language and behavior like that!

  37. Super Original Lisa says:

    I’m so sorry everyone. I’m glad he got what was coming to him. Maybe next time he won’t be so stupid.

  38. mechanic says:

    Are you from the Netherlands? Or does Little Lisa the Liberal refer to you as some kind of female cleansing bag?

  39. joemama says:

    He should have been carrying train fair instead of a gun. He brought it on himself and has no one else to blame. You don’t pull a gun on police and not expect to get shot at. And yes, they will fire multiple shots until what they are shooting at is disabled and no longer a threat. He should not ride a train and not expect to pay for it. He should not carry a gun and not expect getting shot and killed. He doesn’t appear to have been raised with very good ethics or morals.

  40. John says:

    Newsflash: Not everyone works 9-5 M-F. That and it’s totally irrelevant.

    Innocent people DO run after they see cops beating innocent people and even KILLING them over petty crimes.

    You know what they say about assuming, you should probably stop doing that and grow a brain.

  41. trj says:

    Lisa, YOU are an idiot and I think it’s great how these people all clowned YOU!

  42. Extremely well drafted, makes an informative read.
