A man who was fatally shot in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood early Wednesday morning has been identified by the medical examiner's office as 22-year-old Fairfield resident Jeremy Buenaluz.
San Francisco police said they responded to the shooting in the city’s South of Market neighborhood around 4:53 a.m.
According to police, four people were inside a car approaching 3rd and Bryant on their way to the Bay Bridge when someone opened fire on the vehicle.
Investigators told KTVU that their shot spotter system detected six shots. Bullet casings were found at the intersection.
Immediately after the shooting, police said, the driver sped away and crashed into something near 3rd and Brannan. That’s where police found the bullet-riddled car and the badly wounded man.
Police said the victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries. He later died of his injuries.
Authorities have not released a description of the shooter.
