One man was killed and a woman seriously injured Sunday morning after the man’s son had attacked them, according to police.
The incident occurred around 10:23 a.m., at 49 Ceres Street in the Bayview District, San Francisco Police Sgt. Wilfred Williams said.
Responding officers found the father dead at the home and the stepmother suffering from life-threatening stab wounds, Williams said.
The 22-year-old man is in custody for allegedly fatally stabbing his father and seriously injuring his stepmother, a police sergeant said.
The son, who allegedly left the home after the stabbing, was found at a Walgreens store several blocks from his father's house when a person atthe store called police to report the man was acting suspicious, Williams said.
When officers linked the man to the stabbing victims, they realized he was allegedly responsible for the father's death and stepmother's injuries, according to Williams.
Williams said a motive for the stabbings remains under investigation, but they appear to have stemmed from "some type of argument."
