Homeless man fatally gunned down by San Bernardino Police officer.

Homeless man fatally gunned down by San Bernardino Police. The cop say the homeless man waved what might have been a handgun at them … but it’s not clear if he was actually armed.

The shooting occurred Saturday night at a gas station, where cops were responding to reports of a man brandishing a gun on the premises.

When they showed up, cops say the drifter was still carrying what appeared to them to be a firearm, and refused to put it down.

A video taken by an eyewitness reveals — an officer giving the order … and seconds later, they fire multiple rounds. The man was taken to a hospital and later pronounced dead.

It’s unclear what made the cops shoot, but Santa Barbara Police Department released an image seemingly hinting at the reason.

Witnesses on scene told the L.A. Times they’d seen the guy there earlier in the day searching through trash cans and begging in the street.

A cashier at the Circle K across the street says she believes the police mistook a flashlight he had as a gun, adding he was harmless.
