San Francisco police are investigating a shooting that killed a man in the city’s Tenderloin neighborhood early this morning.
At about 12:40 a.m., police and emergency crews responded to a building in the 200 block of Hyde Street near Turk Street following a report of an unresponsive man, according to San Francisco police spokeswoman Officer Grace Gatpandan.
Police found the victim and determined that he had been shot inside the building, Gatpandan said.
The suspect had fled the scene prior to the arrival of police and remains at large.
The victim, identified as a man in his 40s, was suffering from at least one gunshot wound and was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, but died en route to the hospital, police said.
The San Francisco medical examiner’s office has not released the victim’s identity and police have not released a description of the suspect.
Anyone with information about the homicide is asked to contact police at (415) 575-4444 or to text an anonymous tip to 847411 with “SFPD” followed by the message.
