Bay Area Police Officers Shoot Four Suspects in Less than Two Days
Since then we have seen the fatal shooting of: 46-year-old Vinh Bui, who was allegedly brandishing a knife, by San Francisco police; a woman in Oakland at the hands of San Leandro Police following a car chase; and a Hayward resident who was gunned down outside a trailer around 9 a.m. today after allegedly trying to use some form of weapon (as yet undisclosed) against an officer.
With the exception of the San Jose incident, all of the encounters ended with the death of the suspect.
The SFPD has announced that a "preliminary investigation" indicates that the shooting was "within policy." Oakland detectives are reportedly investigating the shooting involving San Leandro officers.
