(07-14) 11:20 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- A San Francisco man was shot to death after a fight early Sunday with three men in the South of Market area, police said.
Frederick Marcello, 36, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 12:50 a.m. attack at Fifth and Clementina streets. The attackers fled in what police described only as a small black car, driven by a fourth person.
No arrests have been made, and no description of the assailants was immediately available.
Marcello was the third homicide victim in the city in a week and the 55th of the year.
On Friday, Armando Estrada, 30, of Rodeo, was shot to death at 12:30 p.m. at 20th and Mission streets. Police say Estrada may have argued with another man on the street before being shot.
On July 6, 67-year-old Gale Savoie, a visitor from Washington, D.C., was beaten to death inside the New Pacific Hotel on Polk Street in the Civic Center neighborhood.
No one has been arrested in either Estrada's or Savoie's slayings.
