SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities say a man suspected of fatally stabbing a woman was shot and wounded by U.S. Park police in San Francisco after he threatened officers with a knife.
The San Francisco Chronicle says police began searching for the man Friday after a woman was found in her Marin City apartment dead from numerous stab wounds.
While deputies were investigating the stabbing, California Highway Patrol dispatchers received a report that a man covered in blood and carrying a knife had gotten on a public bus in Marin City.
Park police spotted the man exiting the bus in San Francisco's Marina District and opened fire when he threatened them, officials said.
The suspect, whose name wasn't released, was treated at a hospital for gunshot wounds.
Investigators are trying to confirm the relationship between the suspect and the victim.
