SAN FRANCISCO — A man was stabbed to death near Golden Gate Park early this morning, the first homicide in San Francisco in over two weeks.
Officers found the body of the man, who has not been identified, at 2:30 a.m. in the west parking lot of Kezar Stadium, on the 800 block of Stanyan Street, according to Sgt. Lyn Tomioka of the San Francisco Police Department. The man was pronounced dead at the scene, Tomioka said.
