SAN FRANCISCO -- An armed man was shot and killed inside a city park Friday night after he pointed a firearm at officers, police said.

Officers at 7:10 p.m. responded to a pedestrian path on the north slope of Bernal Heights Park after receiving multiple 911 calls reporting a man with a gun in the park, Sgt. Danielle Newman said.

When police arrived they found the man with the weapon and he reportedly pointed it at officers, Newman said. In fear for their lives, multiple officers fired shots at the man, striking him an unknown amount of times.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have not released the man's identity or how many officers fired shots at him.

An additional weapon was found at the scene, Newman said. She did not say what type of weapon it was. No additional information was available.

The shooting remained under investigation Friday night by the department and the San Francisco District Attorney's Office.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call police at 415-553-1444.
