Gun-wielding man shot dead near San Francisco

San Francisco, Dec 31 (IANS): A gun wielding man was shot dead at a busy area near San Francisco, police said.

The 32-year-old man was shot dead on Saturday night after he refused to lay down his weapon and fired at police officers outside a bank in Redwood City, about 40 km south of San Francisco, reports Xinhua news agency.

The shooting came less than a day after San Francisco police launched a Maximum Enforcement Period (MEP), or tightened security across the city, in the final holiday weekend of 2017.

San Francisco Police Chief William Scott told a press conference Friday that "additional deployment" of police has been planned for the holiday weekend to ensure "public safety at New Year's Eve celebrations".
