SAN FRANCISCO -- A 19-year-old man fatally shot by San Francisco police is considered a person of interest in a South Seattle shooting last Wednesday that killed 19-year-old Tanaya Gilbert and wounded three others, according to authorities.

Police said the man was shot in a confrontation with police at a transit platform Saturday, and was a parolee from Washington state. The coroner identified the man as Kenneth Harding, 19.

Harding had been detained by patrol officers doing fare inspections at a San Francisco Municipal Railway light-rail stop at Third Street and Palou Avenue at about 4:45 p.m. Saturday, police said.

Police said Harding ran from the officers and pulled out a handgun and shot at them as they chased him. At least one of the officers returned fire and wounded Harding. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 7:01 p.m.

No police officers were injured. The officers involved in the shooting had been conducting the fare inspections while they were stationed in the area as part of an increased police presence in response to recent shootings in the neighborhood, police said.

Police said detectives have learned that Harding was a person of interest in the Seattle shooting. The gun used to the San Francisco shootout was found after police received tips to its whereabouts. It will be tested to see if it matches bullets used in the murder of Tanaya Gilbert. The testing could take days or weeks.

Amateur video footage of the exchange showed that a passerby picked up Harding's handgun after the shootout and took it from the area before investigators were able to establish a crime scene, police said.

But with the help of witnesses, police were able to identify the person who took the gun, and recovered it Sunday afternoon.

The shooting is the third involving San Francisco police since early June. On June 7, officers fatally shot a suspected Southern California bank robber near Buena Vista Park after he allegedly tried to run them over with his car.

On June 29, police shot and wounded a wanted parolee after he shot at officers near Gough and Ellis streets, according to police.

Saturday's shooting triggered an impromptu protest in the Mission District early Sunday morning, and another rally is planned for noon today at the site of the shooting in the Bayview District.

Protesters are calling for the formation of a civilian review board and FBI investigation of the shooting.

The rally's organizers, which include the Idriss Stelly Foundation, the local chapter of Education Not Incarceration and the San Francisco Bayview National Black Newspaper, also want to see District Attorney George Gascon removed from the investigation, saying he has a conflict of interest because he used to be police chief.
