A 27-year-old man was killed Sunday, in a brazen midday shooting on Third Street in San Francisco.
The San Francisco Police Department says the call reporting the slaying at Third Street and Armstrong Avenue came in at 12:35 p.m. Sunday.
When officers responded to the scene, they discovered a 27-year-old male victim suffering from gunshot wounds. He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where police say he succumbed to his injuries.
Saying only that the suspect in the shooting is male, and is associated with an "unknown vehicle," police cited the ongoing investigation as the reason no additional information on the crime was available as of publication Monday. They do confirm, however, that no arrests have been made in the case.
That slaying marks the sixth homicide for San Francisco for 2017, following the death of a man found injured at Mission Street and Excelsior Avenue at 9:15 a.m. Sunday. According to SFPD's Compstat report from January of 2016, at this time last year San Francisco had suffered one homicide, and in January, 2015, we'd suffered nine.
