Man fatally shot outside Burlingame hotel was SF resident

A man who died after he was shot early Sunday morning outside a Burlingame hotel has been identified as San Francisco resident Dean Trefault, according to the San Mateo County coroner’s office.

Officers found Trefault, 28, suffering from a gunshot wound around 5:45 a.m., after responding to a report of a shooting in the driveway of the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport hotel located at 1333 Bayshore Highway, police said.

Emergency crews attempted to treat the male victim, but he was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

Investigators believe the shooter may have targeted Trefault. Police also believe Trefault was not a guest at the hotel, but was visiting someone staying there, Burlingame police spokesman Lt. Jay Kiely said.

No arrest has been made in the shooting and a description of the suspect was not immediately available.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Burlingame police at (650) 777-4100.
