A Thursday morning confrontation between two men resulted in the stabbing and death of one of them, an unnamed 39-year-old male victim.
While we don’t have many details yet, the Chronicle reports that a man was stabbed and killed shortly before 1:30 a.m. Thursday morning near the intersection of Market and Octavia streets.
Per the Chronicle, there was apparently “a confrontation” between a 40-year-old man and a 39-year-old man. During that confirmation, the 39-year-old man was stabbed by the other man.
The stabbing victim was transported to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, and later died, according to SFPD. Police have not released a description of the suspect.
According to SFPD crime dashboard data, this would be San Francisco’s 44th homicide of the year.
