A teenager was shot and killed in the Mission District Sunday night, and the suspect vehicle involved in the shooting managed to evade police.
The shooting happened right around midnight near the intersection of 24th and Capp streets, as Bay City News reports. Police arrived quickly at the scene after a ShotSpotter alert, and saw a car fleeing the area. They also found a male victim suffering from a gunshot wound on the 3200 block of 24th Street, which is between Capp and Mission streets. As the Chronicle reports, police offered aid to the victim and EMTs were called, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The medical examiner has not yet identified the victim, but Mission Local reports that he was only 15 years old.
Edgardo Campos, whose jewelry shop J.J. Jewelers was one of the storefronts taped off this morning, tells Mission Local he was unsurprised by the shooting, and that he's been robbed three times over the years.
KPIX reports that SFPD investigators were on the scene until 4:30 a.m. Monday, and police tape remains around the scene where the victim was found.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to called the SFPD's anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444.
This was San Francisco's 18th homicide of the year, and the third in the Mission District.
The victim in the city's most recent homicide on June 30, at the intersection of Geary and Steiner, has been identified as 30-year-old Terrence Wilson.
