A person of interest was detained in connection with the killing of a 51-year-old woman in low-income housing near the Tenderloin late Tuesday, police said.

The woman was shot to death around 8 p.m. in a building at 149 Mason Street close to Ellis Street. Police found a woman there suffering from a gunshot wound to her upper torso and performed CPR on her.

She died at the scene. A 62-year-old man was taken to Tenderloin Station in connection with the killing, pending further investigation. It’s unclear whether he will be booked or released as of Wednesday evening.
