A man killed in a daylight shooting on a San Francisco street was identified by the medical examiner’s office this morning as 19-year-old Jamar Lake.

The victim was a San Francisco resident, according to the medical examiner.

Lake was shot at 10:34 a.m. Thursday at the corner of Laguna and Eddy streets in the Western Addition neighborhood.

Police said a male suspect walked up to Lake and shot him in the head, then fired at a group of people across the street before running away.

Nobody else was injured in the incident, police said. Lake was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died.

His death marks the city’s 39th murder this year, Sgt. Steve Mannina said.

There have been no arrests in the case.
