The San Francisco Medical Examiner has released the identity of the man gunned down in the wee hours this morning at Jones and O'Farrell:
Steven Garrett, a 26-year-old San Franciscan.
Garrett was beaten and shot multiple times by two other black
twentysomething men at around 12:25 a.m. Police say a fight broke out
that culminated in his murder. Two suspects -- one of whom had
dreadlocks -- fled the scene on foot.

A semi-automatic pistol was recovered near the shooting site in a mailbox. The suspects remain at large.
Garrett is the city's 31st homicide victim of the year and first since German tourist Mechthild Schröer was shot dead when caught in a crossfire between gun-toting revelers in the Theater District on Aug. 8
