A San Francisco man was shot to death near SF State Saturday, in the city's 26th homicide of 2016.
According to the San Francisco Police Department, at 12:18 Saturday morning, police were called to the area of Lake Merced and Font Boulevards, an intersection at the edge of the San Francisco State University campus.
When officers arrived, they discovered a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound. He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, but was dead on arrival, according to police.
When contacted by SFist, the San Francisco Medical Examiner identified the victim as Thanh Tam Nguyen, a 34-year-old SF resident.
An SFPD spokesperson confirms that Nguyen's death is the city's 26th homicide of 2016, following a fatal shooting last Tuesday outside Shotwell's bar in the Mission District.
Police say that they believe the suspect in Nguyen's slaying was a man aged 20-25, armed with a handgun, but did not have any additional details on the suspect or a motive in the crime at publication time.
