SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A San Francisco police officer has shot a suspect in the city's Bernal Heights neighborhood.
San Francisco Police Department spokesman Sgt. Eric O'Neal said the shooting took place just after 7:30 p.m. and that the extent of the suspect's injuries was not yet known.
The reason the officer fired his weapon was not immediately clear nor was the reason that authorities were investigating the suspect.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that officers had cordoned off the area as they searched Bernal Heights Park for witnesses.
The Chronicle says no officers have been injured.
