The shooting occurred at around 2:53 p.m. near Jones and McAllister streets, police said.

Police initially said the victim was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, but the man apparently died as a homicide investigation has since been launched into the shooting.

Soon after the incident, police cordoned off Jones Street between McAllister Street and Golden Gate Avenue as investigators examined the area outside the Boyd Hotel at 41 Jones St.

Police did not immediately release any information on a suspect.

As of last week, San Francisco had not had a homicide reported since Sept. 21, when 61-year-old Arif Qasim was killed during a fight in Potrero Hill.

That homicide marked the 29th of the year in San Francisco.
