The Mission District suffered a grim holiday when a man was shot and killed Monday morning in what witnesses described as a heated argument. It's the neighborhood's third murder in the last seven days.

Medical authorities told SF Weekly they have not yet identified the victim, who was only described as a 45-year-old black man. Police say the argument took place sometime around 2 a.m. on the corner of Guerrero and Camp streets. Witnesses heard shouting and then several gun shots.

When police arrived they found the victim dead by a tree.

The man had been shot twice -- one in the the head and once in the chest, according to news reports.

Last week, a 22-year-old father was shot in the head while he was taking a smoke break during his shift at Hog and Rocks restaurant near 19th and San Carlos. Police say he was mistaken for a gang member, which he is not.

That same night a known gang member was shot and killed on Hampshire street. Monday's shooting is the city's 35th homicide of the year.
