Man shot, killed after driving at police officer
October 23, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Ryan Salonga

Police have identified the man who was fatally shot by a San Bruno police officer early Tuesday morning as 25-year-old Ryan Salonga.

Salonga, a San Francisco resident, was allegedly in a stolen car that an officer attempted to pull over around 2:10 a.m. in San Bruno Tuesday morning, San Bruno police Lt. Tim Mahon said.

Salonga allegedly did 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.

When the officer exited his vehicle to apprehend the suspects, Salonga made a U-turn and drove directly at the officer, Mahon said. Feeling threatened, the officer discharged his firearm and shot the driver, according to police

Salonga was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mahon said Salonga had an “extensive criminal history.” He said the department was working to confirm that he was the same man arrested in a 2008 police chase with San Mateo County sheriff’s deputies.

In that incident, Salonga, then 20, attempted to evade police by speeding away onto Interstate 280 near San Mateo.

A San Mateo County sheriff’s deputy had approached Salonga in a vehicle parked at the Sawyer Camp Trail, but he drove off.

He eventually crashed on the highway. Another passenger was in the car and the two ran away from the crash.

Salonga was caught a short time later and arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest, evading a peace officer, driving with a suspended license and possessing burglary tools after the tools were found on him and in the car.

His alleged accomplice was able to evade authorities.

In Tuesday morning’s incident, a man in the front passenger seat of the car was taken into custody on an unrelated outstanding warrant following the shooting, Mahon said.
