A man was found dead in an SUV on the Great Highway early Thursday morning following a shootout nearby on Irving Street.
The shoutout happened just before 1 a.m. according to the SFPD, on the 4600 block of Irving Street. As KPIX reports, arriving officers found a man at the scene where shots were reportedly fired suffering from a gunshot wound.
