SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A law enforcement officer with the San Mateo County Vehicle Task Force was injured by a suspect he was chasing in San Francisco’s Oceanview neighborhood Tuesday afternoon, according to police.
San Francisco police responded to reports of an officer-involved shooting around 4:20 p.m. involving an officer with an outside agency.
Three officers from three different agencies associated with the task force were in one vehicle when they followed a Honda from San Mateo County into San Francisco, police said.
When they approached the car around 3:30 p.m. near Faxon Ave. and Montana St., a shooting happened.
Sources tell KRON4 a San Mateo County CHP officer pulled over a vehicle at Capitol Ave. and Montana St. in San Francisco.
The driver of the stolen car left and somehow dragged the officer which is when the officer took out his weapon.
The officer shot the suspect.
The driver of the stolen car has life-threatening injuries and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital.
The officer has non-life threatening injuries and was also taken to the hospital.
Police have not said how the officer was hurt or what agency the officer works for.
Redwood City California Highway Patrol said a CHP officer was injured on social media.
Any updates regarding the CHP officer that was injured will now be handled by SFPD. Thank you. https://t.co/BGF1HrVk5P
