One man is in jail this morning and two more are on the lam after police chased their car through the Mission District as one suspect fired rounds at the officer.

According to Sgt. Michael Andraychak, the incident started about 1:30 a.m., when a cop was shot at "multiple times" from a moving vehicle with three suspects aboard. The officer was able to maneuver around the suspect vehicle to dodge the line of fire. 

The officer called for backup while chasing the fleeing vehicle through the Mission District. Three suspects jumped out of the car as it approached the 2500 block of Bryant Street; the officer caught up with one of the suspects, but the two others got away, according to police.

The cops set up a perimeter as they combed the surrounding area for the two suspects. That's all the information we have at this time, but we will tell you more when we know more.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
