SF Police Detain Woman After Shots Fired In Tenderloin Community Center

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) -- San Francisco police Saturday morning detained a person who barricaded
herself in a residential facility and allegedly fired a gun, a police spokeswoman said.

Officers detained a woman at about 11 a.m. outside an apartment in the 200 block of Turk Street where she gave herself up, spokeswoman Officer Grace Gatpandan said.

A bullet allegedly fired by the woman went through several walls but everyone escaped injury.

Gatapandan said the person appears to need mental health care. She may or may not be arrested.

San Francisco police captain Theresa Ewins told KCBS Radio that streets around the Salvation Army Corps Community Center on Turk were evacuated as a precaution but those streets have since reopened.
