A teenage male was shot to death in San Francisco Friday, in what appears to be San Francisco's fourth homicide for 2017.
In a series of tweets, San Francisco Police Department Sergeant Mike Andraychak said that the shooting occurred at 4:35 p.m. Friday near the intersection of Broad and Plymouth Streets in the Oceanview neighborhood.
An 18-year-old male was killed in the gunfire, Andraychak says, declining to provide additional details. Bay City news reports that the victim has been identified as SF resident Josiah Lightfoot.

That area, Plymouth and Broad Streets, has been the site of at least two other homicides in recent years: In October of 2015, a man was killed in a Sunday morning shooting that also shattered area storefronts, and in October of 2016 a man was killed in a double shooting near that same intersection.
Lightfoot's shooting appears to be San Francisco's fourth homicide on 2017, following the fatal beating of Gabriel Ramirez in the Tenderloin. 41-year-old SF man Abdul Cole was arrested in that case, police say, and was booked into San Francisco County Jail on suspicion of murder.
