Woman seen leaning out of car holding AK-47 in San Francisco

She was riding shotgun – with an AK-47.

The San Francisco Police Department posted a photo of a woman hanging out of the passenger seat of a speeding Cadillac.

“During an illegal exhibition of speed event at Barneveld & McKinnon, a passenger leaned out of a Cadi holding an AK47,” the traffic safety unit said in a tweet about the July 11 incident.

The vehicle from the Wild West scene was finally tracked down and seized Wednesday, police said.

A speed exhibition is a crime under California’s Vehicle Code 23109, KRON4 reported.

Police did not say whether the gun-toting woman or anyone else was arrested, or whether she pulled the trigger. The SFPD did not immediately respond to a request for comment by The Post.

The image of the woman waving the assault rifle triggered a flood of reactions of Twitter.

“And I thought CA had a ban on high cap magazines like that 30 rounder,” @The_AZ_Warrior wrote.

“It is a pretty badass picture though,” @NickNando89 fired off.

But @Probius6 noted: “Except for the lack of trigger discipline,” referring to the woman’s apparent failure to adhere to the basic firearms safety rule of keeping the finger outside the trigger guard area.

The alarming incident comes after police reported an increase in shootings and assaults in the Golden City during the first six months of the year, Fox News reported.

The city reported 119 shootings in the first six months of 2021, compared to 58 in the first half of last year, according to the news outlet.

“We’re almost double where we were in the last two years, and that is a huge concern,” Police Chief Bill Scott told reporters last month.
