Suspects at large in Tenderloin killings

Suspects remain at large for two early morning shootings today in San Francisco that claimed the lives of a teenage boy and a man in his 20s, according to police.

Officers discovered the first victim, a 29-year-old man, lying facedown in the bike lane in the 2300 block of Post Street shortly before 1 a.m., police said.

Emergency medical crews determined the victim had suffered one gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

Just after 4 a.m., a vehicle passed three people standing on the corner of Ellis and Larkin streets in the Tenderloin neighborhood and a passenger in the vehicle allegedly fired at the group before the vehicle, with four suspects inside, drove away, police said.

Reynaldo Cruz Hernandez, 17, was struck with a bullet and transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to police.
