Officials meet with neighbors following homicide

Supervisor John Avalos and Ingleside Police Station Capt. David Lazar plan to meet with residents rattled by last week’s mysterious homicide in the Excelsior District.

A representative from SFPD’s homicide detail will discuss the Oct. 12 killing of Eric Buschman, 49, and answer questions from residents. Police say Buschman was unloading his pickup truck with a friend in front of his home after a camping trip to Lake Shasta when a man approached and suddenly stabbed him.  The killer was last seen running from the area northbound on Athens Street and then west on Excelsior Avenue, police said.

The meeting will be held Wednesday, 7-8 p.m. at Coleman Advocates, 459 Vienna St. It follows a Sunday vigil for the victim at Athens Street at Excelsior Avenue.
