San Francisco authorities identified the man who was mysteriously gunned down over the weekend as 67-year-old Xue Zhong Mi, a San Francisco resident.

According to Sgt. Dennis Toomer, a family friend went to pick up some items at a house on the 1800 block of 44th Avenue and found Mi lying in the garage.

Fire crews pronounced him dead at the scene.

The Medical Examiner arrived and discovered a gunshot wound to the back of Mi's head, declaring it a homicide, Toomer said.

Police had no more details at this time. The shooting is the city's 15th homicide this year. Last week, 18-year-old Karl Mitchell was gunned down in the city's Visitacion Valley neighborhood.
