SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A San Francisco Police Department officer shot and killed a suspect on Friday evening, SFPD confirmed.
Police originally responded to a call regarding a suspect armed with a gun attempting to enter a Glen Park home, SFPD confirmed. The incident happened around 2:20 p.m. on the 100 block of Bosworth Street.
SFPD said the person who discovered the suspect got out of the home and called police. Officers arrived at the scene and contacted the suspect. SFPD said he refused to comply with officers for about 3 and a half hours.
