San Francisco police officers Thursday morning shot and killed a person armed with two guns in front of the BART station at San Francisco International Airport’s international terminal, according to police.

At about 7:30 a.m., SFPD officers responded to reports of an armed individual at the station and confronted the suspect, who continued to pose a threat despite de-escalation efforts, police said.

Officers then used non-lethal means to try to contain the situation, but the suspect continued to advance, and officers fired shots, killing the person, police said.
