Coroner identifies teen killed in South City shooting 

A 15-year-old boy killed in a shooting in South San Francisco on Tuesday night has been identified as Jose Manuel Lopez, San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault said Wednesday.

Lopez, a South San Francisco resident, was shot at about 7:30 p.m. while walking with another juvenile in the 800 block of Hickory Place, South San Francisco police Sgt. Joni Lee said.

Responding officers found Lopez lying in the street between two parked cars. He had suffered at least one gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police learned a silver minivan had driven by Lopez and his friend going north on Hickory Place. As it passed, the van stopped and a male exited, firing three to four shots at the juveniles before getting back inside the vehicle. The van then drove away north toward Olive Avenue.

The vehicle is described as a late 1990s or 2000s silver minivan with tinted rear windows and sliding doors on both sides.

Anyone with information is asked to call the South San Francisco Police Department at (650) 877-8900.
