Narvaez, a San Francisco resident, was in critical condition earlier this week, but has since been arrested on suspicion of second-degree burglary, robbery and battery causing serious bodily injury, said Officer Gordon Shyy.
On Sunday just after 12 p.m., police responded to a fight at the corner of Chestnut and Pierce streets where an adult man was seen striking another person over the head with a silver firearm. The man then fired several shots at the victim, according to police.
When police arrived, the suspect took off running along Toledo Street and then hid in a bush at Mallorca and Capra streets. Officers spotted the suspect, and repeatedly ordered him out. The suspect bolted again, running northbound on Mallorca. As he ran, he turned his own gun on the officers, prompting the cops to fire back, according to police.
The suspect was hit by bullets and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he was treated for his injuries. He's since been booked in County Jail where his bail was set at $115,000.
Tonight, Police Chief Greg Suhr is hosting a town hall meeting in the Marina to discuss the details of this officer-involved shooting. If you're interested in this case, or feel like giving the cops an earful, head down to Marina Middle School, 500 Fillmore St. at 6:15 p.m.
