An unidentified man was killed Tuesday night in a shooting incident in the city's Hayes Valley neighborhood.

According to Officer Albie Esparza, officers were called to the 700 block of Grove Street just before 8 p.m. on reports of a shooting. When they arrived, they found the victim suffering from two gunshot wounds: one in his leg and one in his chest.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died a few hours later. Esparza said the cops have yet to determine a motive for the shooting, nor do they have a description of the suspect at this time.

The shooting marks the city's 63rd homicide this year. The night before Thanksgiving, 36-year-old Angelo Rodriguez was shot to death near the Sunnydale housing projects. That case remains under investigation.

This is the second shooting in less than a month in those 2 blocks


NICE!!  One block away from me right now! I didn't even hear any sirens and I was live tweeting Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer at 8pm.
