The victim of a fatal shooting in South San Francisco on Tuesday evening has been identified as 29-year-old Ronald Figueroa of Belmont. Figueroa had been standing in front of a home in the 300 block of Lux Avenue when he was shot in the face at about 7:30 p.m., South San Francisco police Sgt. Joni Lee said. He then ran to the side of a house where he collapsed and died, Lee said. Police said Figueroa was a transient, but his driver’s license listed him as a Belmont resident, a deputy coroner said.
Witnesses reported seeing a vehicle in the area that may have been connected to the murder, but police haven’t determined whether the shooting was a drive-by, according to Lee. The vehicle is described as red or orange four-door early 2000s Honda Civic with chrome rims. Lee said the neighborhood where Tuesday’s murder occurred was the scene of a shooting last year as well.
She said the area is known for gang activity, but police haven’t determined whether Tuesday’s homicide was gang-related. Figueroa’s death marks the city’s first homicide this year.
