Knife Vs. Bean Bag Rounds

A couple weeks ago it was reported that SFPD had discharged some bean bag rounds at some nut with a knife, allegedly. Last night, reader Channing filled us in on what really went down, allegedly:

Captain Corrales commented on the incident [last night] at the Police Community meeting. The following is my recollection of Corrales’ account:

There was a disturbed man wandering around the area with a knife. Police shot him with some unspecified less-than-lethal weapon, to no effect, and then pepper-sprayed him, also to no effect. They finally restrained him by brute force, resulting in unspecified injuries to three officers.

Apparently, when the man was identified it turned out that both he and his father had missing-persons reports on them. Oakland PD searched an address associated with the two and found that his father had been murdered, probably by the son.
