Police arrest suspect in fatal Tenderloin shooting

Officers over the weekend arrested a suspect in a shooting last week in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood that killed a 37-year-old man, police said.

The shooting happened Thursday night, around 10:50 p.m. near the corner of Eddy and Mason streets, according to police.

After responding to the shooting, officers found a 37-year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

In the days following the fatal shooting, investigators were able to identify 41-year-old James George as a suspect. Then on Saturday night, investigators located George, an Antioch resident, near Seventh and Market streets in San Francisco and arrested him on suspicion of homicide, being a felon in possession of a firearm, assault with a deadly weapon and battery, police said.

George remains in custody, according to jail records.

The San Francisco medical examiner’s office is working to identify the victim.
