A 48-year-old woman died Tuesday after being shot over an argument a day earlier in Hunters Point, police said.
Deanna Rice, of San Francisco, was shot multiple times near Earl Street and Kirkwood Avenue at around 11:30 p.m. Monday, according to police and the Medical Examiner’s Office.
Witnesses heard the gunfire and saw a man fleeing the scene on foot, police said. The suspect, described as a 21-year-old man, used a handgun in the shooting.
Rice was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries and died the following day.
Investigators believe she was shot “in response to an earlier argument,” a police spokesperson said.
The shooting is not being investigated as an instance of domestic violence.
This is the second woman killed in San Francisco in a week.
Last Thursday, 51-year-old Pilar Wolfblack was fatally shot in Visitacion Valley, according to authorities.
Wolfblack died after being taken to the hospital from Schwerin Street between Sunnydale and Visitacion avenues at around 11:45 p.m., police said.
Officers responded to the scene after receiving a ShotSpotter gunshot detection alert.
No arrests have been announced in either case.
