A 21-year-old woman shot and killed early Wednesday morning in the Mission District has been identified as an East Bay resident, according to the San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office.
Lisa Williams was shot near the intersection of South Van Ness Avenue and 19th Street at around 3 a.m., according to police.

Police said the suspect may have been in a car, but have few other details regarding the killing.
Williams died at the hospital. Her death marks The City’s 51st homicide year, which is one shy of 2015’s homicide count.
Last year’s homicide count was relatively low and followed a year with a record low count of 45 homicides in 2014. But numbers are only about half of The City’s average annual homicide count — 100 — for much of the past decade and a half.
