The San Francisco Medical Examiner has identified the gunman who police officers shot and killed on a hospital rooftop Wednesday.
Police said the suspect, 25-year-old Javier Lopez Garcia of San Jose, robbed a Big 5 Sporting Goods store in San Bruno at gunpoint about 30 minutes before the deadly shooting. He stole ammunition and a shotgun, authorities said. San Bruno police released surveillance footage of that robbery on Thursday.
San Bruno police said the man used a handgun when he demanded a shotgun from the Big 5 clerk. The suspect told employees he was suicidal, authorities said.
Bruno was killed around 4:15 p.m. Wednesday while standing on top of a hospital construction site, pointing a shotgun at the building, San Francisco police Chief Greg Suhr said late Wednesday.
Once he spotted officers, Bruno pointed the gun toward them, according to Suhr. Three officers then opened fire, shooting the gunman, who was later pronounced dead, Suhr said.
The hospital, at Cesar Chavez and Valencia streets, is under construction. It's not clear why the gunman went to the construction site, a replacement building for nearby St. Luke's Hospital in San Francisco's Mission District.
Teams of police scoured the building Thursday, collecting evidence.
Normal hospital operations resumed at 10 p.m. Wednesday, according to hospital spokesman Dean Fryer, who added there were counselors on hand for the staff.
