The San Francisco police chief has invited everyone to an open forum tonight where they can get all their questions answered about the recent officer-involved shooting, where cops wounded an 18-year-old boy.

Police Chief Greg Suhr will recap the Wednesday night incident where the suspect led cops on a car chase before allegedly reversing his vehicle into one of the officers.

Tonight's meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the San Francisco Community College's Southeastern Campus,located at 1800 Oakdale Ave.

On March 5, at about 6:49 p.m., four cops were patrolling the housing projects in the Bayview near Ingalls and Kiska streets when they spotted a silver BMW sedan that was wanted in connection with an armed carjacking in which the suspect used a long barreled gun. The cops attempted to pull over the driver, who instead of stopping, hit the gas pedal, leading the officers on a car chase through the Bayview.

The suspect vehicle came to a stop at a cul-de-sac; when the officers got out of their cars, the suspect allegedly reversed his vehicle, hitting one cop and a patrol car, police said. When the driver started to press on, the other officers shot at him, fearing for their own lives.

Get the full story tonight, and ask Chief Suhr whatever the hell you want.
