The victim was in a dance cafe in the 200 block of Terry A. Francois Boulevard near Third Street when he got into an argument with another man at about 1:40 a.m., San Francisco police Officer Samson Chan said.

The argument continued outside and eventually turned violent, according to Chan.

“That’s when the suspect pulled out a gun and shot the victim in the chest,” Chan said.
The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital where he died later this morning from the one gunshot wound, according to Chan.

The suspect fled the scene and had not been arrested as of 3 p.m.

Police are encouraging anyone who may have witnessed the shooting to contact the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444.

3:29 PM: A 39-year-old man was seriously wounded in a shooting outside a dance cafe in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood early this morning, a police spokesman said.

Officers received a call at 1:41 a.m. of a shooting victim in the 200 block of Terry A. Francois Boulevard, police Officer Samson Chan said.

The victim and the suspect had apparently engaged in a verbal altercation inside of Jelly’s, a restaurant and dance cafe on Pier 50 along Terry A. Francois Boulevard near Third Street, Chan said.

The argument escalated, and the men stepped outside into a nearby parking lot, where the suspect shot the victim once in the chest.

Medical units responded at about 1:45 a.m. to the area and the victim was transported by ambulance to San Francisco General Hospital shortly before 2 a.m., a San Francisco fire dispatcher said.

The victim’s injuries are believed to be life threatening, Chan said.

Police do not have a suspect in custody and have not released suspect information at this time pending the ongoing investigation.

Chan said that although it appeared that numerous witnesses were on the scene, none has come forward with information at this time.

Witnesses and others with information about the shooting are asked to contact police via the anonymous tip line at (415) 575-444 or by texting TIP411.
