Just before 5pm tonight, San Francisco police chased down a man without a Muni ticket and shot him dead. Witnesses at the scene say he had his hands above his head as he was running away from police. Witnesses say the young man was shot 5 or 6 times.
Police say the man fired shots at them as he ran. In a video captured just after the shooting, with the man still lying in a pool of his own blood what appears to be a silver handgun can be seen in the lower right corner of the frame in the opening moments.
