Violent S.F. night ends in another homicide

An early morning stabbing in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood that claimed the life of one man followed an evening of heavy violence in the city, according to the San Francisco Police Department.

On Thursday night, officers responded to three separate shootings that occurred in different parts of the city and sent three men to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

The first shooting occurred in the 100 block of Taylor Street in the Tenderloin at around 9:20 p.m., according to a police dispatcher. Police said a 31-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound to his arm.

At 10:06 p.m. police responded to reports of shots fired in the 1800 block of Sunnydale Avenue in the Visitacion Valley neighborhood, the dispatcher said. Police located a 29-year-old man who had been shot four times, once in each arm and twice in his chest. The man was transported to the hospital with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

About an hour later, at 11:10 p.m., police responded to a third shooting in the 1700 block of McKinnon Avenue in the city's Bayview District, police said. Officers found a 20-year-old man who had been shot once in the back. The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to the dispatcher.

Then, early this morning, officers responded to a fatal stabbing at around 2:10 a.m. in the unit block of McAllister St., just one block from University of California's Hastings College of Law, police said.

The victim, a male in his 20s, was stabbed multiple times and pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

No arrests have been made and police are investigating the crimes.
