Man Dead Following Standoff, Officer-Involved Shooting in San Francisco

A man died Sunday following an officer-involved shooting in San Francisco that initially began as a standoff situation inside an apartment, according to police.

The man's wife and two children were inside the apartment during the more than three-hour-long ordeal, but they were eventually rescued, San Francisco Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said.

Officers first received calls around 11:35 p.m. on Saturday about a domestic violence situation in an apartment in the area of Salmon Street and Pacific Avenue, Andraychak said.

Officers heard yelling coming from the apartment and then heart at least one gunshot minutes later, Andraychak said.

Negotiators were called in and proceeded to work with the man for more than three hours, according to Andraychak. Just after negotiations stopped at 2:50 a.m., officers heard another gunshot.

"Out of concern for the safety of the hostages, the tactical team made entry to the apartment and an officer-involved shooting occurred," Andraychak said.

The woman and children were rescued and taken out of the apartment before being treated by paramedics, Andraychak said. The man was transported to a hospital and later pronounced dead.

An investigation is ongoing.
