Friends and family of a San Francisco police officer killed on the job are gathering Tuesday to mark the second anniversary of his death.

Officer Bryan Tuvera was shot to death while chasing an escaped felon in the Sunset District.

The escapee, Marlon Ruff, killed himself before police could catch him.

There will be a ceremony Tuesday to unveil a plaque honoring Tuvera and dedicating the Taraval Police Station Community Room in his name.
