An overnight shooting has left a man dead in the street at Jones and O'Farrell in the Tenderloin. The victim's identity will be revealed pending notification of his family, the medical examiner's office tells SF Weekly.

The shooting took place at around 25 minutes after midnight this morning, and the victim was a black man in his 30s or, possibly 40s, according to the SFPD.

Two men fled the scene; both are black males, believed to be in their 20s, and one had dreadlocks, the San Francisco Police tell SF Weekly. A semi-automatic pistol was recovered near the shooting site. The relationship between the suspects and victim and what led to this shooting are not known.

The as-yet unidentified man is the city's 31st homicide victim of the year and first since German tourist Mechthild Schröer was shot dead when caught in a crossfire between gun-toting revelers in the Theater District on Aug. 8
