Car with dead man’s body left at SFPD station

A man who brought a shooting victim to the Ingleside Police Station on Thursday afternoon has been detained for questioning, according to a police spokesman.

At 1:47 p.m., police were called regarding gunshot fire and a man with a gun at 23rd Street and South Van Ness Avenue, said SFPD Sgt. Neville Gittens. Reports also put a red Saab at the scene of the crime, he said. When police arrived, they found evidence of the shooting, but no victim.

Shortly thereafter, at about 3:12 p.m., a red Saab pulled into the parking lot at the Ingleside Police Station, located near City College of San Francisco.

“The officers go out to investigate and they find a male in the passenger seat that had been shot,” said Gittens, who said the man was shot in the head and was dead on arrival.

The driver of the car was detained for questioning, he said, cautioning, “that doesn’t mean he’s a suspect.”

The incident has been assigned to the Police Department’s homicide investigators.

Along with a shooting late Monday night in the Bayview, Thursday’s shooting brings this year’s homicide total to 61, according to Police Department data. By the same date in 2006, The City had recorded 46 homicides.
