Police are searching for a male suspect, believed to be between the ages of 16 and 18, who fled the scene of a Mission district homicide just before 2 a.m. last night. The suspect shot a 26-year-old victim several times in the back after a verbal argument broke out near 23rd and Harrison, before fleeing in a late-model green Subaru Outback.

Paramedics pronounced the victim dead on the scene. The shooting is San Francisco's 43rd homicide this year.

Anyone with information on the shooting or possible whereabouts of the suspect should call the SFPD anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or by text message to TIP411.
