For the second day in a row, Ellis Street in San Francisco's Tenderloin District has been the site of an early-morning shooting that claimed a man's life.
According to the San Francisco Police Department, today's homicide was perpetrated by an "unknown" man with a handgun at 4:30 a.m. Friday at the intersection of Polk and Ellis Streets.
That's four blocks away from yesterday's gunplay at Ellis and Jones Streets, a 1 a.m. shooting that injured two men and a woman and killed 44-year-old San Francisco resident Shunsie Ellis, the SF Medical Examiner's office confirmed Friday.
In this morning's case, police say that the 24-year-old male victim, who has since been identified by the San Francisco Medical Examiner's office as SF resident Mitchell Warren, was transported to the hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. His death, police say, is San Francisco's 35th homicide for 2016.
