SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco police shot and killed a man who was in the trunk of a car during a deadly officer-involved shooting in the Mission District..
The shooting started Tuesday shortly after 10:30 p.m. when two people flagged down a San Francisco police car, to report they were victims of an armed robbery, according to Sgt. Michael Andraychak.
A short time later, police found a car matching the description given by the robbery victims -- a Honda Civic.
The car's driver and a female passenger were arrested on Capp Street between 21st and 22nd streets. And then the officers noticed the trunk of the car was slightly open and found a man inside.
Police shot him as they tried to detain him, and he died. A witness took some video of the shooting, which sounded like firecrackers. "Shots fired! Shots fired!" can be heard coming from the street.
A handgun was found in the trunk of the car.
