There was a shootout by the ocean over the weekend -- a man stealing a bicycle at around 1 a.m. Saturday morning near 48th and Taraval fired shots at the cops, hitting their car. The cops returned fire, but the thief fled. He was later found hiding in shrubbery by Santiago and the Great Highway around 4:45 a.m. with injuries to his hand, and taken into custody.

And yes, we have now moved to the portion of the blotter where dog bites man. A dog being rescued off a cliff at Fort Funston near the hang gliders bit the firefighter trying to rescue him/her, on the face. We know the doggie didn't mean it!
