Person of interest detained in Tenderloin homicide case

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.

Police are investigating the homicide as the 37th of the year, after a man was fatally shot in the Bayview and woman was found dead with blunt force trauma in the first days of the month.
