A man who was gunned down in San Francisco’s Bayview District this morning has been identified by the medical examiner’s office as 22-year-old Dominic Scott. Officers responded to reports of shots fired at Third Street and Palou Avenue at 8:24 a.m. and found Scott, a San Francisco resident, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said. Police saw a suspect, a 22-year-old man, running from the scene and arrested him a few blocks away at Quesada Avenue and Keith Street, Esparza said. His name had not yet been released this afternoon, according to Esparza.
A gun believed to be the murder weapon was found in the wheel well of a nearby car, Esparza said. The motive shooting remains under investigation, he said. The shooting prompted the extended closure of southbound Third Street at Palou Avenue. Southbound San Francisco Municipal Railway bus and light-rail service was disrupted until about 12:45 p.m., according to transit officials.
