S.F. POLICE MISS SUSPECT, HIT TWO BYSTANDERS INSTEAD:
According to police, at 2:06 a.m., officers located a wanted person in the 400 block of Broadway. The suspect ran away from police and produced a weapon, they said.
Officers then fired at the suspect, who was not hit. However, two bystanders were hit by the gunfire. They were taken to a hospital to be treated for their injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening, according to police.
Just a note that if a CCW permit holder had shot at an assailant, missed, and hit bystanders we’d hear people claim that civilians can’t be trusted with guns. Oh, and they’d publish his/her name, while the officers’ names are left out of this account. Not saying the officers were wrong here, just noting the double standard.
