One person shot to death, another dies suspiciously in separate incidents in The City this weekend 

One man was gunned down during a Tenderloin drive-by and a woman died suspiciously in Chinatown this weekend, according to the police.

The incidents were unrelated and only one suspect, a 48-year-old man booked into County Jail on a murder charge, has been arrested following the crimes.

Harris Rosenbloom was arrested Sunday when he called officers to report a woman’s death at the 600 block of Jackson Street in Chinatown, Officer Albie Esparza said. But when the medical examiner arrived and deemed the death suspicious, he was arrested at the scene.

The death of the unidentified woman, aged 30 to 35, according to police, has not yet been pronounced a homicide by the medical examiner.

Police have yet to make an arrest in the second incident Saturday in the Tenderloin when someone in a late-model SUV opened fire on the 500 block of Larkin Street at 1:10 a.m., striking a man in the chest.

He was pronounced dead on arrival at San Francisco General Hospital and has not been identified by the medical examiner.

If the first incident is considered a homicide by the medical examiner, it will mark The City’s 21st homicide of the year.
