San Francisco Police Shoot and Kill Man in Shocking Instagram Video

At least eight San Francisco police officers were surrounding a man when several opened fire, shooting and killing the knife-wielding man in a hail of bullets earlier today.

Had it not been caught on Instagram video, this could easily have been reported as another case of a suspect “lunging” at the officers.

That, after all, is one of most commonly used words in police reports in cases where cops kill citizens carrying knives.

The video shows the man sauntering away from an enclosing group of cops with a witness yelling “drop it” before the camera is turned downwards, capturing the sounds of gunfire as horrified witnesses scream in shock.

The video ends after 15 seconds because that’s the limit for Instagram users.

Prior to the video surfacing, San Francisco police were telling the local media that the man was only “injured.”

But San Francisco Examiner reporter Michael Barba [__has been posting updates__](https://twitter.com/mdbarba) on Twitter, conforming the man’s death.

**UPDATE:** San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr [__told reporters__](http://www.sfgate.com/crime/article/Police-say-SF-officer-shoots-suspect-in-Bayview-6671485.php) that the video shows the man “move toward officers.”

But the video shows an officer step in front of the man as he tries to walk away.

**UPDATE II:** The man who was shot and killed has been identified as [__26-year-old Mario Woods.__](http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2015/12/03/mario-woods-stabbing-suspect-killed-sfpd-confrontation-caught-on-video-san-francisco/) Police say he had stabbed another man in the shoulder prior to police confronting him.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

Please make a donation below or click on side tab to learn more about our mission.
