Two SF homicides in past two days

Two homicides have been reported in San Francisco since Tuesday, including a shooting in South of Market and the mysterious killing of a 49-year-old Portola district man, according to police.

The shooting occurred Wednesday just before 5 a.m. at Third and Bryant streets, Sgt. Danielle Newman said. A 22-year-old man was reportedly found with multiple bullet wounds and died after being transported to San Francisco General Hospital.

No arrests have been made, and no information regarding suspects or a motive was released.

Early Tuesday, police added, 49-year-old Hung Huynh was found dead in his home in the first block of Yale Street. His death was reported by other residents of the home, Officer Gordon Shyy said.

Although the cause of death is still being determined, Huynh was not shot, Shyy said.

“Based upon the evidence at the scene, we suspect foul play,” Shyy said.

The Medical Examiner’s Office also determined Huynh’s death was a homicide.

The killings were the 38th and 39th homicides of the year in San Francisco, Shyy said. There were a total of 60 homicides at this time last year, and 68 in all of 2012, according to police data. In 2011, there were 50 homicides.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
