A man was fatally shot by a San Bruno police officer after a brief car chase this morning, a police lieutenant said.

The officer spotted a stolen vehicle around 2:10 a.m. and tried to pull it over, Lt. Tim Mahon said. The driver would not yield and a short chase ensued, police said.

The car turned onto the 500 block of Poplar Avenue, off of El Camino Real, which is a dead-end street, Mahon said.

While the officer was trying to apprehend the suspect, he felt threatened and shot at the driver, Mahon said.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another man who was in the front passenger seat of the car was not injured, and was taken into custody on an unrelated outstanding warrant,

according to Mahon.

The shooting is being investigated by the Police Department and the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call San Bruno police at (650) 616-7100.
