A 55-year-old man who was shot and killed in a building in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood early Thursday morning has been identified.

The San Francisco Medical Examiner's Office has identified the victim as San Francisco resident Ronnie Hyson.

At about 12:40 a.m. on Thursday, police and emergency crews responded to a building in the 200 block of Hyde Street near Turk Street following a report of an unresponsive man, according to police spokeswoman Officer Grace Gatpandan.
