DALY CITY, Calif. (KGO) --Police officers who responded to a domestic dispute report pursued a suspect and eventually shot him in the backyard of a Daly City home Monday afternoon.
Numerous 911 calls came into Daly City police dispatchers at around 12:45 on Monday afternoon.
The callers said there was a possible domestic violence incident at the Serramonte Ridge Apartment complex on the 800 block of Campus Drive, with reports of an armed man who was chasing a woman.
"The male had possibly been armed with a knife and was chasing her," explained Sgt. Edward Green with the Daly City Police Department.
The suspect allegedly darted from the apartments, chased by several officers up a hillside and into the backyards of homes on St. Francis Boulevard.
Police said the officer shot the suspect once. The man was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries not considered life-threatening.
The pursuit occurred in close proximity to the Jefferson Union High School District's main offices. An employee there confirmed that there was a lockdown because of the incident, but did not provide further details.
