One dead in Mission District shooting

Another person has been slain in the streets of San Francisco, bringing this year's homicide total ever closer to the 10-year high of 96 in 2005.

At 11:15 p.m., police responded to a report of multiple gunshots near 25th and Folsom streets where they found 38-year-old Pepefou Faalogoifo lying on the ground after having been shot, according to San Francisco Police.

Faalogoifo, a resident of San Francisco, was transported to San Francisco General Hospital where he died, said San Francisco Police Sgt. Steve Mannina.

It appears to be the first homicide since a particularly bloody Oct. 3 when three people were killed in three separate incidents.

If anyone has any information on Wednesday shooting or any other case, they are encouraged to call the police on the confidential tip line at (415) 575-4444.
