SF man identified as victim of fatal Bayview shooting that injured 5

The man slain in a Bayview shooting that injured five others over the weekend has been identified as a 20-year-old San Francisco resident, the Medical Examiner’s Office said Monday.

Darius Thomas was shot and killed while standing with the other victims late Friday night at Third Street and Quesada Avenue, according to authorities. The shooting sent a 24-year-old man to the hospital in life-threatening condition and four men aged 19 to 31 to the hospital who were expected to survive.

As of Monday morning, one of the men remained in the hospital in serious condition and another in critical condition, according to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital spokesperson Brent Andrew.

Police have yet to release a description of a suspect in the shooting.

The shooting marked the twelfth homicide of the year so far. On March 15, a 49-year-old homeless man named Quang Truong was killed in a Chinatown alleyway. Police have yet to make an arrest.
