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.
