Medical authorities have identified the man who was shot to death during a heated argument last week as 26-year-old Reynaldo Cordova.

Cordova, a San Francisco resident, was on 23rd and Harrison streets on Friday morning when he got into a verbal fight with three men. One of the suspects pulled out a handgun and shot Cordova four or five times in the back before the three jumped into a green Subaru and drove off.

Cordova died at the scene, according to police.

Police still have very little information about the suspects, other than they were three Hispanic males -- the shooter was described as being between 16 and 18 years old.

The shooting was San Francisco's 45th homicide this year. On Oct. 3, Richard Fowler Jr., 28, was shot in the head as he played video games inside his parent's Bernal Heights home. Police arrested 34-year-old Anthony Wright on suspicion of killing Fowler, whom he knew.
