A San Francisco police officer was shot in the head Friday evening in the city’s Taraval District and a suspect was in custody, according to reports.
KTVU reported that the officer was conscious and breathing and was expected to survive. The officer was taken to San Francisco General Hospital after the shooting.
The incident began at around 8:15 p.m. local time when police responded to a report related to a mentally disturbed individual. KGO-TV reported that police tried to confront the individual who reportedly pulled out a handgun and opened fire, striking the officer.
Police issued a shelter-in-place order for the area as they pursued the suspect, who had reportedly fled the scene.
“This brave officer was doing his job, protecting the citizens of San Francisco, when he was struck by a bullet tonight,” Martin Halloran, president of the San Francisco Police Officers Association said in a statement. “For his courage, he deserves all our gratitude and respect. Please keep him in your prayers tonight.”
No name released yet.
