Lee was shot when police responded to a noise complaint at the Granada Hotel, a retirement community at 1000 Sutter St. in the Nob Hill neighborhood where Lee lived, at about 11:10 a.m.
Management called police after residents complained of loud music coming from Lee’s seventh floor apartment, and Lee refused to turn the music down, police said. He then reportedly began throwing his speakers out the window.
Officers went to the man’s room, and upon entering, Lee allegedly displayed a weapon, there was an altercation, and Lee was shot, police said.
The type of weapon has not been disclosed, though police have said there was more than one weapon in the room at the time.
Police continue to investigate the shooting.
