Man Stabbed To Death In The Richmond District

SF: UPDATE: MAN FATALLY STABBED IN RICHMOND DISTRICT PARKING GARAGE

SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)

Homicide investigators are trying to determine today what led a 45-year-old San Francisco man to stab another man to death inside a Richmond District parking garage Wednesday afternoon, a police spokeswoman said.

Ryosuke Yoshioka, 59, of San Francisco, was attacked in the parking garage located above the OfficeMax at 3700 Geary Boulevard at about 2:45 p.m., according to authorities.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, the medical examiner's office said.

According to police spokeswoman Sgt. Lyn Tomioka, investigators still are not sure what precipitated the attack, which was witnessed by at least three people.

The bystanders were able to detain the suspect in the stabbing at the scene until officers arrived and arrested him, Tomioka said.

The suspect, Peter Fong, remained in custody today after being booked for murder, according to Tomioka.

Fong bears "no relation" to current Police Chief Heather Fong, Tomioka emphasized.

A manager at the Office Max said today he had been informed of the stabbing by police, but had no knowledge of the incident at the time.

Any additional witnesses to the attack are asked to contact the Police Department's homicide detail at (415) 553-1145 or the confidential tip line at (415) 575-4444.

The stabbing is the first homicide reported by San Francisco police this year.

I agree with the purpose of this blog, but stealing content is bad. Why do you do it? Publications pay a lot of money to use BCN's feed and/or hire reporters to write stories. An ethical blogger would provide a small excerpt a story and link to the rest. You're behaving like a thief. How do you justify this?

As a reader, here's my unsolicited opinion on the matter...

I have NO idea what BCN is, nor do I know specifically of any publications that subscribe to this feed. Frankly, I'm not really concerned with the ethical aspects of how news is propagated.

While I believe that the dissemination of information should be free, I don't begrudge anybody the idea of making money by selling news stories/information. If such a practice proves viable, that's fine by me. However, if it fails, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.

He has a link at the bottom of the article dumbass. Get the hell over it. People don't exactly have all the time and money in the world to go through all the papers to find out what really happens in San Francisco. Complaining about this is like complaining about rotten bread you brought in the bakery when your grandmother just died of a heart attack.
