Police investigating homicide near Candlestick Park 

San Francisco police are investigating what may be The City’s first homicide of 2015.

Police were gathering information at the scene Wednesday night at Jamestown Avenue and Harney Way near Candlestick Park.

At some point Wednesday night, a 22-year-old male victim with gunshot wounds was taken to the Kaiser Permanente medical center in South San Francisco and then transferred to San Francisco General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office.

Since at first the crime was thought to have occurred in South San Francisco, the body was transferred back to San Mateo County. Now that investigators have tied the homicide to the crime scene near Candlestick Park, the body will be transferred back to San Francisco on Thursday.

Further details on the homicide were not available Thursday morning.

The homicide was the first in San Francisco this year. There were a total of 45 homicides in 2014, Officer Albie Esparza said.
