Man killed in Mission, 67th homicide in '08

A man who was shot multiple times in the Mission district early Monday morning died later in the hospital, marking the 67th homicide of the year.

San Francisco police officers responded to the scene at the unit block of San Carlos Street after reports of gunfire were heard at about 5:15 a.m., according to the San Francisco Police Department.

When they arrived, they discovered a man lying on the ground, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, police said.

Officials from the Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that the man died from his wounds after being transferred to San Francisco General Hospital. They had no further information on the victim.

The man, whose name has not been released by authorities yet, is the 67th homicide victim in San Francisco, according to a count by The Examiner.  The homicide is the first in The City since Aug. 25, when 18-year-old Jorge Hurtado, a student at San Francisco State University, was shot to death at 23rd and Treat streets.

Monday’s homicide was The City’s first of September. There were seven homicides in August, as well as one death still listed as “undetermined” by the Medical Examiner’s Office. In that case, police responded to reports of an argument at a residency motel on Market Street. When they arrived they found a man dead from a stab wound to the chest.
