The San Francisco Medical Examiner has identified the driver fatally shot by authorities after plowing his way through the Chinese consulate near Japantown earlier this week.
Who he was: The man was identified as Zhanyuan Yang, 31, of San Francisco. His motive remains unknown, but an anonymous White House official said investigators believe he was “acting with malign intent.”
What he did: Yang rammed a blue Honda Civic into the lobby of the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China, located at Laguna Street and Geary Boulevard, at around 3 p.m. on Monday. Witnesses said he carried two knives and a crossbow and had a firearm on the back of his car.

Yang was bleeding from his head when he exited his vehicle and yelled, “Where’s the CCP?” A large police presence arrived at the scene and ended up shooting him to death.
Investigation continues: The matter is being investigated as an international incident. The Chinese government denounced it as a “violent attack,” while the White House said it condemns “all violence perpetrated against foreign diplomatic staff working in the United States.”
