SAN FRANCISCO -- Authorities say the 23-year-old man charged with the murders of two women inside a crowded San Francisco jewelry mart is facing charges in a separate case in which he allegedly drove at a police officer.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1bD5pmp) that Barry White has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon in the 2009 incident. Authorities say he was trying to flee from police after he and his friends couldn't get into a party in Antioch, and one of them threatened the bouncer with a shotgun.
White allegedly drove at an officer, who got out of the way and fired at the vehicle. White was later found with gunshot wounds.
The criminal case is ongoing.
White's attorney, Jivaka Candappa, has said his client had his hands in the air and his back to police when he was shot.
