Taraval Police Station to hold vigil in memory of fallen officer
The San Francisco Police Department will hold a vigil Wednesday night in memory of Taraval Station Officer Bryan Tuvara, who was shot four years ago in the Sunset District while pursuing a suspect wanted on a felony warrant.
The memorial service will be held from 8-9 p.m. in the Community Room of Taraval Police Station, 2345 24th Ave.
The SFPD website has more on the circumstances of Tuvara’s death:
Officer Tuvera was shot the night of December 22, 2006 by a suspect wanted on a felony warrant. When the suspect attempted to flee on foot, officers initiated a foot pursuit. The suspect broke into the side door of a residence and went into the garage. When officers moved to take the suspect into custody, he opened fire, striking Officer Turvera.
Despite valiant efforts by San Francisco Fire Department and San Francisco General Hospital staff, Officer Tuvera succumbed to his injuries early the next morning. He was 28 years old.
Officer Tuvera entered the San Francisco Police Department on July 1, 2002.
The website The Officer Down Memorial Page has a page about Tuvara.
