SF woman killed in officer-involved shooting identified 

A woman who was shot and killed by police Tuesday night after allegedly fleeing from officers in a stolen vehicle has been identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Alice Brown, 24, of San Francisco died at the scene near the corner of Pine Street and Van Ness Avenue. Brown’s family has been notified of her death, and the cause of death is under investigation, the Medical Examiner’s Office said.

The incident unfolded shortly after 7 p.m. when officers investigating reports of a stolen car approached the car Brown was occupying, a Volkswagen, at a Chevron gas station on Van Ness Avenue at Pine Street.

When the officers showed their badges, Brown reportedly fled in the car and officers followed on foot. In the chase, police said Brown struck the gas station and eventually drove at officers and other occupied vehicles. That is when the officers — possibly two or more — opened fire, killing her.
