A man who was shot and killed near San Francisco’s Crocker Amazon Playground late last month was identified by the medical examiner’s office today as 30-year-old Carlos Ruben Banegas-Nunez. Banegas-Nunez was found shot just before 8 p.m. on March 28 near the corner of Geneva Avenue and Moscow Street, according to police. He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital but died a short time later.

Investigators are looking for a single suspect in the shooting but have not located him as of this morning, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said. Banegas-Nunez’s death was the third homicide in the area of the playground in March. Kenyatta Butler Jr., 18, of San Leandro, and 19-year-old Donzel Gaines, of San Francisco, were both shot and killed there the morning of March 9. Two 21-year-old men, Davante Robinson and Gregory Morton III, have been arrested and charged in that slaying, but Banegas-Nunez’s killer remains at large.
