A 28-year-old man was fatally shot in a home in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights neighborhood on Monday night, a police spokesman said today. The shooting was reported at 9:38 p.m. at a home in the 400 block of Franconia Street.
The victim was shot in the head by the suspect, who was seen fleeing from the home and into another home nearby on Holladay Avenue, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said. The victim was taken to a hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival.
His name is not being released by the medical examiner’s office until his family is notified of the death. The suspect, whose name was also not yet being released this morning, was taken into custody at the home on Holladay Avenue, Esparza said.
The motive for the shooting remains under investigation, he said. The homicide is San Francisco’s 45th of 2011. At the same point last year, there had been 37 homicides in the city.
