A man who was severely beaten in San Francisco's Mid-Market area has died, taking San Francisco's homicide count for 2016 to 33 deaths.
According to the San Francisco Medical Examiner's Office, 52-year-old SF resident Evaristo Rocha died last week of injuries from an earlier assault.
The Ex reports that Rocha was the victim of physical assault in late August at Market and Jones Streets, which is between Sixth and Seventh Streets. As of Friday morning, no additional details were available on the attack.
Rocha never recovered from the beating, and died on September 13. His death has been ruled a homicide, the ME's office says, and will be investigated by the San Francisco Police Department.
