Two shootings and a homicide happen overnight

A 40-year-old man was stabbed to death in a market in the Tenderloin neighborhood early this morning and two other people were shot in separate incidents. 

San Francisco resident William Quinn was attacked around 1:50 a.m. inside the Cadillac Market at 499 Eddy St., police and storeowner Irfan Ali said.

Ali said this morning that one of his employees, who was working behind the counter at the time, told him that a man walked in and asked the employee to call 911.

A second man, apparently Quinn, followed the man inside the store, according to Ali.

Ali said the first man then pulled a knife on Quinn and stabbed him. Police came immediately and arrested a suspect, according to Ali. Police later identified the man as 46-year-old Patrick Sullivan.

Two separate shootings were also reported overnight; one in the Visitacion Valley neighborhood and another in the SOMA neighborhood.

The SOMA shooting happened around 11:40 p.m. Sunday, in a homeless encampment near Fourth and Bryant streets.

A 53-year-old man was shot in the jaw, and the bullet fragmented into the lower portion of his head, said Sgt. Eric Washington.

He was taken to a hospital and his condition was unknown.

The Visitacion Valley shooting happened at Wilde Avenue and Rutland Street around 4:30 a.m., according to police. The victim was reportedly shot twice, once in the head, after he discovered three men trying to break into his Buick on the 400 block of Wilde, according to the police.

The suspects, who were all wearing dark clothing, fled on foot before police arrived, according to witnesses.
