The San Francisco Police Department will host a town hall meeting Thursday to share more information about a shooting by police that injured a man allegedly armed with a knife in the city's Tenderloin neighborhood last week. 

The virtual town hall will reveal body camera footage, the events leading up to the shooting and how many officers were involved. 

On Aug. 28, officers responded to reports of a man threatening people while carrying a knife on the 300 block of Jones Street near Boeddeker Park at 10:23 p.m. The man was shot at about 10:40 p.m. 

During a press conference last week, SFPD Sgt. Kathryn Winters alleged that the shooting occurred after officers made "consistent attempts" to de-escalate the situation. 

"Unfortunately, that was unsuccessful," Winters said during a press briefing last week.

The town hall will allow space for members of the public to make comments following a multimedia presentation.

The town hall is available for viewing at 3 p.m. Thursday at www.sfgovtv.org/SFPDTownhall090723
