The man who was shot by San Francisco cops during a routine traffic stop on Wednesday died last night, police told reporters.
Officers had pulled the man -- who has not yet been identified -- over on Bush and Larkin streets Wednesday just before 1:30 p.m.. As the officers approached the car, the driver got out and ran south on Larkin Street. Halfway through the block, he turned around and fired several rounds at police, who then shot back.
Police say he was struck in the neck area and collapsed to the ground. He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he died on Thursday.
While officers were chasing the man, a female passenger in the car slid over into the driver's seat and sped off. Police told reporters that they have since located her and are not considering her a person of interest in this case.
