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.
