Gunman On Roof Reportedly Puts SF Hospital On Lockdown.

A man with several firearms who sparked panic near a hospital in San Francisco’s Mission District was shot and killed by police officers late Wednesday, authorities said. Seamus James, a 33-year-old web developer who works in an office across the street from the hospital, told the Los Angeles Times that his co-workers heard what sounded like several gunshots around 4:30 p.m. James and several of his colleagues then ran to the roof of the office building, where they saw at least three dozen police officers swarming a construction site adjacent to the hospital. The gunman was on top of a freight elevator on the construction site, James said, and he saw police throw at least two “flashbangs” in the man’s direction.

Luke’s was put on lockdown, and the incident concluded with multiple police officers opening fire, according to police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza.
