Man Who Was Shot By SFPD Facing Nine Felony Charges

A man accused of shooting at San Francisco police officers in the city’s Western Addition neighborhood in 2011 has been ordered to stand trial on attempted murder and several assault and firearm charges, prosecutors said today.

Roselyndo Sicat, 40, was shot and wounded by officers after he allegedly fired several shots at them shortly before 8 a.m. on June 29, 2011, near Gough and Ellis streets, police said.

Sicat was held to answer today on nine felony counts, including attempted murder, assault on a police officer, possession of a firearm by a felon, illegal possession of an assault weapon, and discharging a firearm with gross negligence, district attorney’s office spokesman Alex Bastian said.

The shooting happened after two plainclothes officers spotted Sicat as he was leaving a residential driveway. He had been wanted on a $75,000 warrant for felony vandalism and resisting arrest and was on active parole for a weapons violation, police said.

After Sicat was shot, he crashed into a parked car and was arrested by the officers, who were not injured in the gunfire, according to police.

He will return to court on June 4 to be formally arraigned on the charges, Bastian said.
