SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco police say officers fired 65 bullets at a suspected killer — and missed.

The department on Tuesday released details of a Feb. 17 shootout in the Design District.

Police were trying to arrest a man for a shooting hours earlier that killed one man and wounded another.

Police say the suspect carjacked an SUV and finally holed up in a recreational vehicle.

Officers surrounded it and ordered him out.

Authorities say three people and a dog left but the man didn’t.

Police say he then fired two shots at officers, who responded with a nearly 15-second fusillade that was captured by police body cameras. One officer fired after falling to the ground.

Nobody was hit.

Joel Armstrong surrendered two hours later.

The shooting is under investigation.
