SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco police say an officer has shot a man in the city's Financial District after he allegedly attacked a co-worker at a nearby chocolate factory.
Police Chief Greg Suhr said the shooting occurred Wednesday morning moments after the 30-year-old temporary worker slashed his coworker with a box cutter at the TCHO New American Chocolate at Pier 17 along the city's Embarcadero.
Suhr said a female officer giving chase ordered the suspect to stop when he lunged at her with the box cutter. She shot him twice in the upper torso.
Suhr said officers began performing CPR on the suspect who was rushed into surgery at a local hospital for his wounds. He is listed in serious condition.
Police say the slashing victim at the factory suffered minor injuries.
