Steven Garrett, 26, Murdered in Tenderloin: Homicide No. 31

The San Francisco Medical Examiner has released the identity of the man gunned down in the wee hours this morning at Jones and O'Farrell: Steven Garrett, a 26-year-old San Franciscan.
Garrett was beaten and shot multiple times by two other black twentysomething men at around 12:25 a.m. Police say a fight broke out that culminated in his murder. Two suspects -- one of whom had dreadlocks -- fled the scene on foot.

A semi-automatic pistol was recovered near the shooting site in a mailbox. The suspects remain at large.

Garrett is the city's 31st homicide victim of the year and first since German tourist Mechthild Schröer was shot dead when caught in a crossfire between gun-toting revelers in the Theater District on Aug. 8.
