San Francisco Police plan on making a habit of speaking with community members after officer-involved shootings that occur in the city.

On Thursday, San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr held a town hall in response to Wednesday's shooting on Gough and Eddy Streets.

The meeting gave those in attendance a chance to learn about the wanted parolee who was shot by police, 38-year-old Roselyndo Sicat.

The presentation also revealed information about the weapons Sicat was carrying when he fired at police.

Police also made clear that these meetings are going to become standard practice.

"When we have an officer-involved shooting, we want to have a meeting in the community within a week to 10 days of that shooting," Suhr said.

The officers involved in yesterday's shooting were not injured. Sicat is being treated for his injuries at Mission Emergency Hospital.
