Officer Isaac Espinoza was shot and killed as he and his partner investigated a suspicious person on Newhall Street at approximately 9:30 pm.

The two officers, who were in plainclothes, observed the man acting in a suspicious manner and approached him in their vehicle. When they called out to the man, he turned around and opened fire with an AK-47 and then fled. Officer Espinoza was struck multiple times and killed. His partner was struck once in the leg and was treated at a local hospital.

The killer was apprehended, convicted of second degree murder, attempted murder and an allegation of knowingly murdering a peace officer, and sentenced to two consecutive life sentences, one without the possibility of parole.

Officer Espinoza had served with the San Francisco Police Department for eight years, and was assigned to the Bayview Station. He is survived by his wife, 3-year-old daughter, parents, and sister.
