With shouts of "fuck the police" filling the background, the following (very graphic) video shows SFPD officers just moments after they shot and killed armed 19-year-old Kenneth Harding on Saturday. You can see Harding try to move several times, bob his head up and down, while his blood grows wider on the sidewalk.
If you recall, Harding was shot in Bayview at around 4:40 p.m. on Saturday after he ran from police conducting a Muni fare inspection along the T-Third line on the platform at Third and Oakdale. "The officers approached the victim when he got off the train without proof of payment, and the victim fled. Police say the victim fired at them during the chase, prompting the officers to fire back several shots."
He was later taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he died.
Harding, a parolee from Washington, was sought in connection with a shooting that left one 19-year-old pregnant woman dead and three others injured last week.
WARNING:The video, shot by a bystander, is rather graphic. Please be advised.
