Suspect dies following shooting at San Francisco barber shop

- The San Francisco Medical Examiner has identified a suspect who died following a shooting at a San Francisco barber shop Wednesday evening. 

The suspect has been identified as 21 year-old Jehad Eid of Suisun City.

Eid was injured in the shooting and taken to  Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead Wednesday evening. 

Six people were shot and wounded at the barber shop near the corner of Mission Street and Geneva Avenue Wednesday around 4:30 p.m. A San Francisco police officer was one of the people injured in the shooting.

People dove for cover when the shootout started.  "I just heard gunshots so I came out to see because I live right on the corner," said resident Torren Beitler," and I heard seven or eight loud gunshots, five at first, then three after." 

San Francisco police say the call originated a few blocks away, in the 200 block of Amazon Avenue, a report of a man with a gun. 

Andraychak could not say who the other individuals are, or their connection, if any, to the suspect.
They range in age from 24 to 48. 

"We don't have that information for you because this is the early stages of the investigation, folks are receiving medical treatment and we are still interviewing witnesses." 

Besides the suspect, one other person has potentially life-threatening injuries and is in serious condition. 

The other three men, including the officer, are in fair condition. 

No information is being released on the minor child. 

Video from a passerby shows the downed officer, shot in the leg, crawling along the sidewalk to safety. 
Another person appears to be crouching, bleeding, in the doorway of a pharmacy steps away. 

A witness at a nearby business saw police bring several people brought out of the barbershop, and take them into custody. 

The police chief, while checking on his officer at the hospital, alluded to more than one person involved. 

"Officers made contact with several individuals in the business and shots were exchanged, " said Chief WIlliam Scott, "and this is an active and ongoing investigation in its early stages." 

Although the incident happened in a busy area with many witnesses, police are asking for anyone with information or video to come forward. 

As always with an officer involved shooting, the department will hold a town hall meeting within 10 days to review what happened.
