A 31-year-old man who was shot early Sunday morning has died from his injuries, and his killing marks San Francisco’s 33rd homicide of the year, according to the Police Department.

The Medical Examiner’s Office identified the victim Tuesday as Carlo Tateo, an Oakland resident. A GoFundMe page set up to raise money for Tateo’s family said he was a physical education teacher at Skyline High School in Oakland, where he was also an advisor. He also coached football, soccer and mentored youth, according to the page.

The school did not respond Tuesday to a request for employment verification.

Tateo was exiting a business with a group of people near Folsom and 11th streets just after 2 a.m. Sunday when an argument broke out.

A man believed to be in his 20s then shot Tateo, who was taken to a nearby hospital. Tateo died that same day from his wounds.

No arrests have been made in the homicide.

“He truly was one of the good ones; a man who would give the shirt off his back to help someone in need without expecting anything in return,” reads the GoFundMe page. “There are simply not enough words to describe his light, but anyone who had the privilege of knowing him or being in his presence, can attest to it.”

Tateo leaves behind a 2-year-old daughter, according the page.

“A family has lost their beloved son, brother, uncle, nephew and cousin,” the page continues. “Friends and co-workers are mourning the loss of one of their own. And so many youth have lost a true role model that was advocating so hard against the very thing that took him from us. Our hearts are heavy with this tragic and unexpected loss. Although there is nothing that will bring him back, we are hopeful justice will be served.”
