Police Chief Greg Suhr told the crowd gathered at Cesar Chavez Elementary School that the 21-year-old Guatemalan immigrant, who was suspected in an attempted bicycle theft, approached the police with a knife.  People at the meeting who knew Perez-Lopez disputed that account, calling him a hard-working man who had come to the U.S. for a better life. - MIKE KOOZMIN/THE S.F. EXAMINER
