Man, woman killed in separate homicides overnight in SF

A woman who was stabbed to death and a man fatally wounded in a shooting in separate incidents overnight in San Francisco mark The City’s 53rd and 54th homicides of the year.

The first incident happened at about 9:25 p.m. in the 2000 block of Sutter Street. The victim, a 56-year-old woman, was fatally stabbed and pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The suspect is described only as a 39-year-old man. It wasn’t immediately known whether he was arrested.

Later that night, at about 11:50 p.m., a man in his early 20s and an 18-year-old woman were shot at Mission and Geneva streets, according to police.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, and the woman was taken to a hospital where she is expected to survive.

The suspects are a 20-year-old man, and an 18-year-old woman and 17-year-old girl.

Further information about that homicide was not immediately available.
