Man arrested in Tenderloin killing released from jail without charges

San Francisco police announced an arrest Thursday in the fatal stabbing of a 41-year-old man in the Tenderloin.

But the suspect in the August killing of Scott Turner, 22-year-old Zachary Green, has already been released from jail. The District Attorney’s Office declined to file charges against Green earlier this week, citing the need for further investigation in the homicide.

Turner was stabbed Aug. 19 near Larkin and Geary Streets at around 10:25 p.m. Paramedics rendered aid and rushed Turner to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Homicide investigators identified Green as a suspect in the killing and arrested Green, a Daly City resident, Saturday in the Tenderloin. He was booked into County Jail on suspicion of murder Saturday but has since been released.
