A Richmond police officer was taken into custody early Sunday morning after police responded to reports of gunshots fired on multiple floors of the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown San Francisco.
San Francisco and Richmond police did not immediately release the identity of the officer, who was detained and hospitalized Sunday, according to officials with both departments.
The officer, however, was identified on SFPD dispatch audio as a Richmond police officer named Phillip Sanchez. He appears to be a sergeant, according to state public employee salary data.
A San Francisco police spokesman said Monday afternoon that Sanchez, 45, was arrested and booked under suspicion of four felony charges: negligent discharge of a firearm, shooting at an inhabited dwelling, assault with a firearm, and vandalism resulting in damage of more than $400.
The incident began before sunrise Sunday morning, with a report to San Francisco police of strange behavior in the hotel's hallways.
