A group of cops shot a man in the Marina District after he allegedly beat and shot another person, then turned his gun on police.

Sgt. Danielle Newman says the incident happened at about 12:30 p.m. Sunday when the cops responded to an altercation at Chestnut and Pierce streets; an adult man was allegedly striking another person over the head with a silver firearm.

The man then fired several shots at the victim, Newman said.

After the shooting, the suspect ran eastbound on Toledo and hid in a bush at Mallorca and Capra streets. Officers spotted the suspect, and several times they ordered him out.

Instead of doing what the cops asked, the suspect bolted, running northbound on Mallorca. As he ran, he turned his own gun on the officers, prompting the cops to fire back.

The suspect was hit by bullets; he was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where is is in serious condition this morning, police said.

There were plenty of witnesses on the scene who are being interviewed now.

As for the initial victim, that person fled the area in a blue vehicle with a female driver. They were later found out of the county, and investigators are on their way to interview them.

If you were out and about yesterday and happened to see this craziness, give Homicide cops a call at 553-1145, or you can call the Anonymous Tip Line at 575-4444 with any information you have. Witnesses can also text-a-tip at TIP411, just remember to text "SFPD" at the beginning of the message.

  • 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.'"
