SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A road near a high school was blocked off due to a police standoff Wednesday afternoon, the San Francisco Police Department said. Around 12:22 p.m., SFPD responded to a suspect who had a gun inside their vehicle near Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory (SHCP) high school.
As of 3:45 p.m., the standoff has been resolved. The male suspect was removed from his car, and streets in the area have been reopened.
Earlier in the afternoon, officers conducted a high-risk vehicle stop and tried to contact the suspect. Police negotiated with the suspect near Eddy Street and Franklin Street.
Officers were trying to get the suspect out of his car and surrender, police said. SFPD was eventually able to use non-lethal force to remove the suspect from his vehicle and take him into custody.
The suspect was not identified by SFPD.
SHCP students and faculty were been told by SFPD they do not need to shelter in place, according to Dean of Students Mario Sazo. Classes and pickups proceeded as normal.
Eddy and Franklin are one block away from SHCP. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact SFPD at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the message with “SFPD.”
