The shooting that prompted a standoff in San Francisco’s Mission District early this morning involved a pellet gun and resulted from a dispute between two roommates, police said.
The suspect, whose name was not immediately being released by police, shot his roommate several times with a pellet gun after the dispute, according to police.
After the victim called 911, officers responded and evacuated several occupants from the building and a standoff ensued. The suspect eventually was arrested and the scene was cleared at 7:13 a.m., police said.
The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are not life-threatening.
The suspect will be booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, police said.
