Police said they found an unconscious man with serious injuries in the 500 block of Post Street near Mason Street shortly after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. Paramedics provided aid but the man, identified by the medical examiner’s office as 31-year-old Andrew Emmett, died at the scene. The death was determined to be a homicide.
Following interviews and evidence, investigators searched a home in Petaluma and detained three persons of interest.
The homicide marks the sixth reported in San Francisco so far this year.
