One man is dead and another injured after an argument at the foot of Haight Street turned violent Saturday morning.

According to the San Francisco Police Department, officers were called to Haight Street at Stanyan Street (where the Haight ends and Golden Gate Park begins) at 2 a.m. Saturday on reports of a stabbing.

Before officers arrived, police say that three men in their early 20's "were involved in a verbal argument with an unknown suspect."

"The verbal altercation escalated into a physical fight," during which two of the men were stabbed.

Both were transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where one of the stabbing victims was treated and released. The second, identified by the San Francisco Medical Examiner's office as 21-year-old Hayward man Jose Garcia Sanchez, "died at the hospital," police say.

The suspect in the stabbing, described only as a man between the ages of 23-25, has not been arrested, according to police.

Garcia Sanchez's death is San Francisco's 48th for the year, following the fatal shooting of Miguel Alvarez last Wednesday in Bernal Heights. That's a number of slayings we haven't seen since 2013, when the final homicide count was 48. San Francisco had 45 homicides for all of 2014, 68 in 2012, and 50 in 2011.
