Evagelia Masaniai, 40, was stabbed repeatedly and died during a bar fight at Club 26 Mix on Friday.
Masaniai, a San Francisco resident who worked at Cunningham Moving and Storage, is survived by a son and girlfriend, according to social media. His identity was confirmed by San Francisco’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
According to police officers, a fight broke out at Club 26 Mix, near Mission and 26th streets, Friday night. When officers arrived at the nightclub at 11:49 p.m., they discovered Masaniai had already suffered apparent knife wounds. Despite medical efforts, he died at the scene.
A Club 26 Mix employee confirmed the incident to Mission Local, but because he wasn’t working that Friday’s shift, declined to provide details.
The cashier at the Stop & Shop Market at Mission and 26th streets said he was not there at the time of the attack, but remembers police officers arriving around 11:45 p.m. Friday and erecting a barricade. “It all happened inside,” he told Mission Local.
As of Monday, no arrests have been made, police said. The incident is being investigated as a homicide and will be overseen by the San Francisco Police Department Homicide Detail.
