SF man killed in Bayview shooting

A 54-year-old man was shot and killed Thursday afternoon in the Bayview, police said.

Antwon Shelbua, of San Francisco, was struck by gunfire near Innes Avenue and Griffith Street at around 3:21 p.m., according to police and the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Shelbua was taken to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds, and died of his injuries despite life-saving efforts by first responders and hospital staff.

Police have not identified a suspect in the shooting or released a description of the suspected shooter.

The shooting marked San Francisco’s 10th homicide of the year.

Just two days earlier, a man was gunned down in a double shooting at 24th and Mission streets late Monday night.

The victim has since been identified by the medical examiner as 26-year-old Isaiah Cardenas of San Mateo County.

There were nine homicides by the end of March 2020, police data shows.
