Less than a day after a man was fatally stabbed just steps from the San Francisco Chronicle's headquarters, a suspect has been arrested in the slaying.
As previously reported, at 6:49 Monday night, the San Francisco Police Department was called to the 400 block of Minna Street between Mary Street and 6th Street.
When police arrived, they discovered a man "suffering from multiple stab wounds to his upper torso," SFPD spokesperson Officer Grace Gatpandan says.
Though "aid was immediately rendered," the man died at the scene. As of Wednesday morning, the San Francisco Medical Examiner's Office has not publicly identified the victim, citing pending family notification issues.
According to the Chron, which occupies much of the block on which the homicide occurred, the stabbing was caught by their surveillance cameras, and was the result of "an argument about a bicycle."
A suspect described only as "a black male adult, approximately 30-40 years old, approximately 5' 11", last seen wearing a black beanie, leather jacket, and dark jeans" was witnessed leaving the scene, Gatpandan says.
Monday night at 11:55 p.m., officers "on routine patrol" at 5th and Bryant Streets detained 33-year-old Antonio Taylor, who they say matched that description. He was taken to SFPD's Homicide Unit "for further investigation" and was eventually booked into San Francisco County Jail on charges of murder, possession of suspected heroin, and an outstanding traffic warrant.
Gatpandan says that Taylor's booking photo won't be released at this time due to "pending identification matters," but that anyone with additional information on the on the slaying should contact SFPD's Anonymous Tip Line at (415) 575-4444 or can text-a-tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the beginning of the message.
