SAN FRANCISCO—Officials from the San Francisco Police Department are investigating a home invasion which took place in the Bayview District, at around 11 p.m. on Sunday, May 21. According to police, there are several suspects involved in the incident.
Bayview District SFPD responded to reports of an apparent home invasion at a residence on 2100 block of Quesada Avenue. As authorities prepared to search the premises, a group of suspects started exiting the building through its rear.
At least one of the suspects fired a gun in the direction of the uniformed officers. This resulted in a brief exchange of gunfire between officers and the suspects, after which the suspects attempted to flee the scene by jumping over the fences in adjacent backyards.
Following a brief foot chase, officers were able to detain one suspect, but the other suspects were able to escape. The SFPD established a larger perimiter and used the assistance of K-9 units to search the area for the remaining suspects. Authorities were unable to locate the other suspects, and the investigation is ongoing. There were no reports of injuries from the gunfire exchanged. Authorities are interviewing residents of the home to gather information on the incident.
The SFPD indicated in a press release that this is an active and ongoing investigation in the early stages. Separate investigations are being conducted by the SFPD Homicide Detail and Internal Affairs Division, the SF District Attorney’s Independent Investigations Bureau and the Office of Police Accountability.
