The suspect drove back towards an on-ramp in an attempt to get onto the westbound direction of the bridge. He rammed another car at the stop sign and then bailed from the police vehicle, jumping from the on-ramp and onto the lower deck, 30 to 40 feet below. On the lower deck, the suspect attempted to carjack another vehicle, but was stopped and subsequently arrested by a police officer who also jumped onto the lower deck.
According to the release from SFPD, two officers, the suspect, and another motorist were taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
The last SFPD officer-involved shooting took place on October 15 in near 8th and Market Streets. Officers reportedly shot the suspect during a confrontation.
