Man slain in early-morning shooting in S.F. 

San Francisco recorded its 65th homicide of the year when a man was gunned down early Friday morning between the Portola district and Bernal Heights.

Police received a call at 12:30 a.m. reporting shots fired and a person down on the ground, Sgt. Steve Mannina of the San Francisco Police Department said Friday. When officers arrived on the scene, they administered CPR to the victim, Mannina said, but when paramedics arrived, they pronounced Eddie Davis, 22, of Pinole, dead.

At this time last year, 48 homicides had taken place in The City. 2005 ended with 96 homicides, 20 of which took place in November. August saw the most homicides in San Francisco this year, with 15.

The shooting comes at the end of a bloody week for San Francisco. Five homicides last weekend pushed The City’s murder rate to 64. The City was put on edge Tuesday when a driver allegedly went on a hit-and-run spree, intentionally ramming his sport utility vehicle into pedestrians on the sidewalk and in crosswalks and injuring 19 people.

Also, police discovered the body of 5-month-old Camille Ferguson early Wednesday, two days after her father, Anthony Theard, 24, reported her kidnapped from his car. Theard is a suspect in that death.

Mannina said police have no suspect description or suspect vehicle description in Friday’s shooting. Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to call the department’s confidential tip line at (415) 575-4444.
