Michael Lee Shot Dead By Police In His Hotel Room
Police responded to the Granada Hotel at 1000 Sutter Street at around 11:10 a.m., and an officer visited a man's room alongside the hotel's building manager. At this point, the SFPD claims the resident "presented a weapon" -- which led the officer to shoot him dead.
The identity of the hotel resident has not yet been released by the Medical Examiner pending notification of the man's family. Yet hotel residents identified him to multiple media sources as Michael Lee, a fortysomething man purportedly originally from Michigan.
Lee's neighbors stated that his violent demise was a shock -- but not a surprise.
