A 16-year-old boy was killed and two others were injured in a stabbing over the weekend in San Francisco, according to police.

Josue Mejia-Sanchez, of San Francisco, was identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office as the teenager who was stabbed during an altercation near the corner of Mission Street and Geneva Avenue on Saturday night at around 9:42 p.m.

People at the scene drove Mejia-Sanchez to the hospital, but he died, according to police spokesperson Officer Joseph Tomlinson.

Tomlinson said a 38-year-old man was also stabbed in the altercation and a 48-year-old man suffered a swollen eye. Medics transported the men to the hospital and both are listed in stable condition.

Police have not released a detailed description of the suspects but said they are looking for three men between the ages of 18 and 20 who used a white vehicle.

No arrests have been made in the homicide.

The killing marked the 42nd homicide of 2018.
