Woman killed at UCSF Parnassus campus

A 60-year-old woman was stabbed to death during a domestic violence dispute with her male companion Thursday afternoon on the University of California San Francisco Parnassus campus in the Inner Sunset, according to authorities.

The woman was allegedly stabbed by her companion, a 46-year-old man, around 4:48 p.m. in a breezeway between buildings on the 400 block of Parnassus Avenue, near the Ambulatory Care Center, UCSF police said.

The woman was taken to the trauma center at San Francisco General Hospital, where she died at 5:33 p.m., police said. The medical examiner has yet to release her identity.

The fatal stabbing marked the first confirmed homicide of the year.

Soon after the stabbing, David Calvin King, her companion, was arrested by UCSF police and booked at County Jail at 10:31 p.m. on suspicion of murder, authorities said.

King is not and the woman was not an employee of UCSF, officials said.

Police took over the block where the incident happened for several hours into Thursday evening. The operations of UCSF Medical Center have not been disrupted, the university said.
