Weekend violence escalates in S.F.

A 54-year-old man was stabbed to death Saturday night in The City’s Western Addition, police said.

Kenneth Taylor, whose city of residence is unknown, was sitting on a bench near Fillmore and Turk streets around 7:30 p.m. when a man allegedly stabbed him in the neck multiple times, a San Francisco police dispatcher said.

Taylor was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died from his injuries. A 44-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of killing Taylor, police said.

In a separate incident a half-hour later, a man was shot at multiple times while driving his vehicle in The City’s Bayview district.

Police said the suspect pulled up next to the victim and shot at him shortly after 8 p.m. The victim’s vehicle crashed; as he attempted to get out of the vehicle, he was again shot numerous times, police said.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he remains in critical condition, police said. No arrest was made.
