According to SFPD spokesman Albie Esparza, no suspect information was immediately available in this case either.
Although San Francisco's homicide rate has been on the the decline, the two incidents this week mark the 12th and 13th homicides in the city this year, and the third in the past five days. On Friday, 25-year-old Dominic Anderson was shot and killed at the corner of 15th and Mission Streets. There have been no arrests in either of those three murders. A fourth homicide this month, in which 40-year-old Coquiese Walker was shot and killed in the Tenderloin, also remains unsolved.
