Man Shot by SF Cops Was Facing Third Strike

December 20, 2011  | 

The San Carlos man fatally shot by a San Francisco Police officer last week was a two-strike offender who wanted to avoid jail, reports the San Francisco Examiner.

Steven Michael Young, 33, was stopped by officers at 1:25 p.m. Wednesday for a vehicle registration check. Instead of handing over his license, Young took off running. During the foot pursuit, he fired six rounds from his .32-caliber handgun. An officer returned fire, hitting him twice in the face.

Chief Greg Suhr briefed the public about the officer-involved shooting during a Monday town-hall meeting.

Gee, I thought that handguns were virtually banned in San Fransisco. And anyone want to take a bet that the perp wasn't the lawful owner of the gun? Yet another strike for the "gun-control" types.

Nice!! Two rounds to the face after being fired at 6 times! Very glad the Officer is OK. And the pos DID avoid going back to jail.
