A man killed in a shooting Tuesday night in San Francisco’s Bayview District has been identified as Lasalle Thompson, 44, of San Francisco, the medical examiner’s office said this afternoon.

Thompson was found with a gunshot wound to his head by officers at La Salle Avenue and Las Villas Court near Hilltop Park around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, police said.
