SAN FRANCISCO -- U.S. Park Police were involved in a shooting in The Presidio in San Francisco this evening after a vehicle allegedly attempted to run over an officer, according to the National Park Service.
The shooting occurred around 6:30 p.m. on Lincoln Boulevard in the Presidio, after an officer spotted a suspect attempting to break into a vehicle, according to National Park Service spokeswoman Alexandra Picavet.
