EMTs attending to the victim at 7:30 p.m. Photo sent in by a reader.

A 39-year-old man is dead after being shot inside a car Friday night, police said. At around 7:22 p.m., SFPD received multiple calls about shots fired around 23rd and Shotwell streets. The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died of his injuries.

The victim’s vehicle had collided with another vehicle, which was unoccupied, police said. After the EMTs took the victim away in an ambulance, the police searched the neighborhood for hours, a witness said. As of late Friday night, police could provide no suspect description or motive.

This is the Mission District’s second homicide for the year, following Richard Sprague’s death at the end of February.

Anyone with information is asked to contact SFPD at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411.
