Man fatally shot in Glen Park ID’d

A man fatally shot in San Francisco’s Glen Park neighborhood on Monday afternoon has been identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office as 45-year-old Marcus Polk.

Officers found Polk suffering from gunshot wounds around 1:30 p.m. Monday in a home in the 100 block of Addison Street. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Police arrested local filmmaker Kevin Epps, 48, in connection with the shooting, but a San Francisco District Attorney’s Office spokesperson said late Tuesday that Epps was being released from custody because of insufficient evidence to charge him.

San Francisco police have not released any other information about what led to the shooting, but released a statement this afternoon about the case.

“It is not uncommon for the DA’s Office to request additional information on a case. SFPD investigators work closely with the DA’s Office and the SFPD Homicide Detail will be continuing the investigation into this matter,” police said.

Epps, whose 2003 film “Straight Outta Hunters Point” documented life in the Hunters Point neighborhood in southeast San Francisco, put out a video on his Instagram page this morning following his release from jail.

The caption of the video said “God is great #freshout , let me live. Blacklivesmatter#kevinepps I love my kids.”
