Police Pursuit From San Francisco To The South Bay Ends In 3 Arrests
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A vehicle pursuit from San Francisco to the South Bay Saturday afternoon ended with the arrest of three suspects wanted in connection with an injury shooting in San Francisco on Friday, a police sergeant said.
At about 3:30 p.m. this afternoon, San Francisco police attempted to stop a vehicle at the intersection of San Bruno Avenue and Ordway Street in the city’s Bayview District, police Sgt. Eric O’Neal said.
Police said the vehicle matched the description of a vehicle wanted in connection with a shooting that injured a 50-year-old man in San Francisco’s Fillmore District on Friday afternoon.
The driver of the suspect vehicle failed to stop for police and officers pursued the driver through the Bayview District, according to O’Neal.
During the pursuit the suspect rammed a police vehicle and was able to evade San Francisco police officers. The vehicle fled onto southbound U.S. Highway 101 and the California Highway took over the pursuit, the sergeant said.
The CHP spotted the suspect vehicle and continued the pursuit on southbound Highway 101 through San Mateo County, O’Neal said.
According to O’Neal, the CHP took three suspects into custody.
O’Neal said the man injured in Friday’s shooting is expected to survive and that the identities of the three suspects in police custody have not been released.
