San Francisco police have released a photo of the victim in a fatal shooting in the city’s Mission District on Friday in the hope that someone may come forward with information to help solve the case.
As previously reported, 24-year-old Lorenzo Jimenez of Sacramento was found lying on 16th Street between Valencia and Guerrero Streets suffering from a gunshot wound to the head at about 11:30 PM Friday.
While at the bar, he was confronted by 5-10 Hispanic men who attacked him after he left, police say. Eventually, one of the men pulled out a gun and shot Jimenez. He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital where he died on Saturday.
SFPD are hopeful that, since the crime took place in a vibrant neighborhood on a Friday night, there are many witnesses that may have seen the incident or the suspects.
