Two homicides happened Tuesday blocks away from each other in South of Market, marking the 22nd and 23rd homicides this year in San Francisco, police said Wednesday.

By Wednesday afternoon, police announced arrests in connection with the first homicide.

The second victim was identified as 25-year-old Pacifica resident Marc-Anthony Salumbides. Bystanders reportedly flagged down officers on patrol in the area of Sixth and Mission streets about 11:07 p.m. on reports of gunfire, Sgt. Danielle Newman said in a statement.

The victim was discovered in the 100 block of Sixth Street suffering from a gunshot wound, Newman said. He later died at a hospital.

There were no known suspects or any other further information as of early Wednesday morning.

Anyone with information on the homicide is encouraged to call police at (415) 575-4444 or text at TIP411 with “SFPD” at the beginning of the message.

The incident happened just blocks away from an earlier homicide on Sixth Street.

In that incident, 18-year-old San Francisco resident Daniel Beltran was reportedly shot near Sixth and Harrison streets about 5:12 a.m. Beltran died at a hospital as well.

Late Tuesday, Darius York, 34, and Joseph Young, 33, both of San Francisco, were arrested in Fremont and booked on murder and conspiracy charges in connection with Beltran’s death.
