Police Kill Man in Drug Raid; Vest Saves Detective

Police shot and killed a man during an Ocean Beach drug raid Friday after the man shot and only bruised an undercover officer wearing an armored vest. Police did not identify the dead man.

Detective John Fung, a member of the police Narcotics Task Force, was knocked to the ground by gunfire about 6 p.m. when he entered an apartment building, Lt. Charles Ellis said. Fung, who was wearing a protective vest, suffered only a minor bruise on the chest.

Ellis said officers responded by firing about a dozen rounds at the suspect. Police arrested five other suspects in the apartment and brought in the SWAT team to surround the building and negotiate with a woman as the man lay bleeding on the floor.
