San Francisco police shoot, kill suspect hiding in trunk

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco police say officers who were investigating an armed robbery shot and killed a man who was hiding in the trunk of a car. A volley of shots can be heard in a video recording.

Police say two people flagged down officers to report an armed robbery Tuesday night in the Mission neighborhood.

The department says officers pulled over a black Honda Civic matching the description of a vehicle involved in the alleged robbery and the driver complied when asked to get out.

Police say officers saw a man in the trunk and while attempting to detain him, “an officer-involved shooting occurred.” The department says officers gave medical aid to the man but he died at the scene.

Police say they found a handgun in the car’s trunk.
