SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco police officials say 10 officers fired 99 times at an armed robbery suspect after he fired on police from the trunk of a car.

Police Chief Bill Scott released information on the last week’s killing of 19-year-old Jesus Delgado Duarte during a boisterous town hall meeting Monday night attended by more than 200 people.

Officials played five videos of the shooting, prompting several people in the crowd to stand up and shout at police in outrage.

After the meeting, the department released nine more videos of the shooting on its website.

Delgado Duarte was hit 25 times and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Delgado Duarte robbed two people on the street at gunpoint, ran back to the car and jumped into the trunk.
