Police: SF Suspect Died of Self-Inflicted Wound

July 22, 2011  | 

A man San Francisco Police initially believed had been killed by officers in a shootout likely took his own life.

The bullet that killed 19-year-old Kenneth Wade Harding on Saturday came from a .380-caliber firearm, and a round of the same caliber was recovered from Harding's jacket pocket, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

So the silver handgun seen in the video wasn't the one that killed him, just the one he shot at police with? He was carrying a back up gun, which ultimately killed him, contrary to what the good citizens around him were saying. Interesting.

I was just reading this story and the local news comes on with the mother of this wonderful citizen saying she is going to sue the city of SF.
She also says her son was going to college coming up and wanted to be a rap star. WOW, what a surprise ............... I forgot, he is a parole at large from Wash., a person of interest in a Homicide up there, he is a known pimp, a known felon, he was carrying a firearm and likes to shoot at cops. Yea, what a great guy........If SF pays a fu---- penny to this woman they are nuts. This AH got exactly what he deserves and mommy doesn't deserve anything.

It sounds like the mother would be praising Hitler if he was her son.
