San Francisco is one of just 2 large U.S. cities without police stun guns -- but that may change

San Francisco is one of only two large cities in the country that do not equip officers with stun guns, a situation the city's police chief wants to change after police fatally shot a knife-wielding stabbing suspect last week.

Police Chief Greg Suhr publicly renewed a call Wednesday night to add the weapon to his department's arsenal, exactly one week after five officers shot and killed 26-year-old Mario Woods in the city's Bayview neighborhood. The shooting was captured on video and circulated widely online, fueling community protests and calls for the chief's resignation.
