The 16-year-old boy who was killed in a stabbing at Mission and Geneva streets around 9:42 p.m. Saturday has been identified as Josue Mejia-Sanchez of San Francisco. He was a student of International High School in Potrero Hill.

Police said Mejia-Sanchez was attacked at the corner of Mission and Geneva and, following the stabbing, transported to the hospital, where he died. Two men — ages 38 and 48 — also suffered non-life-threatening injuries during the altercation.

Police believe three men between the ages of 18 and 20 are responsible for the killing, although no arrests have been made.

Man shot dead at 16th and Valencia still “unknown” 

A shooting near 16th and Valencia streets around 1 a.m. Monday morning left a man dead and a woman in critical condition.

Neither of the victims’ identities have been released, although police said the woman was 55 years old. The man, police said, is “unknown.”

As of late Tuesday morning, San Francisco Medical Examiner could not release the identity of the man who died, as they have yet to contact his family.

A woman who lives near the intersection of 16th and Valencia described hearing five gunshots in quick succession. “It was scary,” she said, noting that she feared for her two young children and considered leaving the house with them. But “it was so fast that I let them continue sleeping.”

This is a developing story and we will update the post as more information becomes available.
