SummaryAlejandro Nieto sought refuge on Bernal Hill. When he had a lot on his mind, friends said, he would trek up the steep slope to sit and think, looking over the city he loved. That's where the 28-year-old student at City College of San Francisco went Friday evening before his shift as a nightclub security guard. That's where police officers found him as they investigated reports of a man with a gun at Bernal Heights Park, acting erratically and threatening passersby. And that is where he died, after police said he appeared to reach for a weapon - friends and witnesses suggested it was a Taser stun gun - and forced officers to open fire.
