From the official San Francisco Police Department:

Wednesday at approximately 0756hrs, SFPD officers from Northern Station located a wanted parolee who was believed to be armed with an assault weapon that was fired earlier in the week.

Officers had information which led the officers to Ellis and Gough where the suspect was located.

The suspect was seen leaving the driveway. Officers identified themselves as police. The suspect then fired at officers and the officers returned fire subsequently striking the suspect.

The suspect subsequently crashed into parked vehicles on the 1000 block of Gough. The suspect was struck multiple times. The officers were then able to take the suspect and render aid.

The suspect was taken to SFGH were he is listed with non life threatening injuries. A visual search of the vehicle revealed an assault riffle and a hand gun located in the passenger floorboard of the vehicle. No officers were injured in this incident.

The matter remains under investigation by Internal Affairs Division (administrative and officer involved shooting team) DA's Office, OCC and Homicide.

From a previous release from SFPD:

An officer-involved shooting occurred near Gough and Ellis streets in San Francisco this morning, police said.

Police have released few details about the incident, but a fire dispatcher said the fire department was notified of the shooting shortly before 8 a.m. and that one person was taken to a hospital.

Peter Gorman, who lives on Ellis near Gough, said he heard two shots then a rapid succession of five to 10 shots.

He later went outside with his dog to see what had happened and found the street filled with police. As of 8:30 a.m., several blocks of Gough Street were cordoned off and commute traffic was backed up.

A gray Honda sedan inside the crime scene appeared to have crashed into a parked car. A San Francisco police patrol car was stopped in the middle of the street inside the taped-off area.

The shooting happened near Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory, but a woman answering the phone there said the school was not affected and that she didn't believe any students were involved
