 Several streets in San Francisco were closed midday Sunday following a deadly officer involved shooting inside a Tenderloin residential hotel.

San Francisco police said one of their officers shot and killed a suspect inside the Granada hotel near Hyde and Sutter streets around 11:30 a.m.

Police said the officer was not hurt.

Officers initially responded to a noise complaint, Sgt. Troy  Dangerfield told Bay City News.

Someone was reportedly yelling and throwing stereo speakers out the window of a  seventh floor apartment, Dangerfield said.

At some point during the investigation, an occupant of the  apartment pulled out a weapon and the investigating officer fired his gun,  fatally wounding the suspect.

The suspect, an adult male, has not been identified.
