Details are light as this is breaking, but a uniformed police officer was shot around 3pm on Florida Street between 25th and 26th. The officer, 23, had recently joined the police force [update: we have since learned the officer is 28 and has been on the force for six years]. What prompted the shooting is currently unknown, but a rumor is circulating that it was following a car chase on 101.
There were 6 or 7 shots fired according to a neighbor, and the officer was struck in the shoulder. The officer was seen “bleeding out” and “someone was looking for a belt to tourinquet him.”
The suspect fled the scene in a gray Mustang. We will update as we learn more.
