SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (AP) - A San Francisco Bay Area man accused of shooting at two police officers has been apprehended after a lengthy manhunt in a neighborhood.
South San Francisco police say they arrested 23-year-old Ivan DeJesus Gomez on suspicion of attempted murder after a more than seven-hour search Thursday morning. Neither he nor the officers were injured.
Officers responding to a 3 a.m. call of reported gunshots were searching the neighborhood when someone opened fire on them. Police shot back, and the man ran away.
Gomez of South San Francisco was found hiding near the shooting scene at 10:30 a.m. A gun hasn't been located.
The shooting comes amid heightened tensions nationwide over attacks on police elsewhere in the country after the killings of unarmed black men by white officers in Missouri and New York.
