UPDATE Dec 25, 2018: The man shot and killed early Christmas Eve morning on Evans Avenue has been identified by the medical examiner’s office as 32-year-old Jovan Reed, of San Francisco.

A driver died after being shot and crashing his vehicle in the Bayview early morning Monday, according to police.

Just after the start of Christmas Eve at 1:15 a.m. the San Francisco Police Department were notified by the shot spotter system near the 1300 block of Evans Avenue, near Youngblood-Coleman Playground.

Officers arrived at the scene and found a male driver in a vehicle that had crashed his vehicle. He was suffering from a gunshot wound, according to SFPD.

The officers “immediately” rendered aid and summoned medics, but the victim was later pronounced dead at the scene.

“This is an active and open investigation,” said SFPD Sgt. Michael Andraychak.

No suspect is yet in custody.

This is the second apparent homicide in three days. Late Saturday night a 26-year-old San Francisco man was shot and killed in the Excelsior neighborhood.


SFPD is asking anyone with information about the incident to call the police 24-hour tip line at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD. SFPD said tipsters may remain anonymous.
