Potrero Hill homicide victim identified

The Medical Examiner’s Office has released the identity of the man shot and killed in Potrero Hill on Tuesday.

Armando Rodriguez, a 32-year-old San Francisco resident, was shot near a taco stand on the 1400 block of Arkansas Street about 1:40 p.m. Wednesday.

Police said the suspect, a man in his 20s, fired at Rodriguez multiple times before fleeing west on 24th Street. No arrests have been made.

Rodriguez was the 82nd homicide victim in San Francisco this year. The homicide tally for this year puts The City on pace to match the decade-high 98 killings recorded in 2007.
