SAN FRANCISCO — This is cell phone footage of an injured San Francisco police officer crawling toward safety.
The officer was shot in the leg, after exchanging gunfire with a suspect in the city’s Crocker-Amazon neighborhood Wednesday afternoon.
According to officials, the suspect died from his wounds after being taken to San Francisco general hospital.
He was 21-year-old Jehad Eid from Suisun City.
The officer and the four others who were shot were also taken to SF General — all are alive.
According to SFPD, officials responded to a report of a man with a gun near the Amazon barbershop.
When an officer arrived on scene, the suspect fled to the barbershop.
That’s when witnesses say they heard dozens of shots.
Local Filipino residents were just as surprised with yesterday’s shooting.
Others say this is not their first time hearing of such an incident.
Police still have not released any new information on what motivated the shooting.
One of the wounded is a minor and no information has been released of his condition.
SFPD is asking anyone with information about the shooting to call the 24-hour police tip line at 415-575-4444, or can text the information to “Tip-411,” and start the message with SFPD.
