Man killed on freeway after being shot ID’d

A man who was struck and killed by a truck as he walked on San Francisco’s Central Freeway earlier this month has been identified as a 42-year-old San Francisco resident.

Jamarr Wilson, who was discovered to have been shot, was struck by a passing truck somewhere just west of the Hall of Justice in the early morning hours of Oct. 13.

Wilson appears to have died from the wounds inflicted after he was struck by the vehicle, but once at the hospital staff noticed he’d been shot in the leg.

Few other details of the incident have emerged, as police and the California Highway Patrol continue their investigation.
