An 18-year-old man who showed up at San Francisco General Hospital with a gunshot wound on Thursday afternoon died from the injury, according to police.

Karl Mitchell, of Pittsburg, had reportedly been shot in the area of Wilde Avenue and Girard Street in the Visitacion Valley neighborhood about 3 p.m.

He was driven by friends to SFGH, where he was pronounced dead. Officer Albie Esparza said.

Police learned about the location of the crime scene after the fact, as apparently 911 was not called and no witnesses came forward, Esparza said.

The homicide was The City's 14th of the year.
