Man mysteriously shot in the Mission
Medical authorities have identified the man who was found murdered Friday night in the city's Mission District as 39-year-old Ronald Monzon.

Police found Monzon, a resident of the Central Valley town of Newman, shot inside a car on the corner of 23rd and Shotwell streets just before 7:30 p.m. The car he was in had crashed into a second, unoccupied vehicle at the intersection, police said.

He was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital, where he later died.

Police have given no possible motives for the shooting, nor do they have a description of the suspect. They are asking for anyone with information about this crime to contact San Francisco police anonymously at 575-444, or text a tip to TIP411.

Monzon's death is the city's ninth homicide this year. Last month, 47-year-old Richard Sprague was found strangled to death on Julian Avenue. Sprague had been walking through the Mission to buy a pack of cigarettes when he was robbed and killed. Sadly, neighbors had heard Sprague call for help, but nobody responded or called police.

The cops arrived on the scene five hours later, where pedestrians were seen walking around Sprague's body.
