3 Detained In Connection With Lower Nob Hill Homicide [Updated]

[Update: 5:19pm] According to SFPD, paramedics who responded to a call about an unconscious person on the 500 block of Post Street rendered assistance, but the victim succumbed at the scene. 

A Medical Examiner who evaluated the victim's injuries "determined they were consistent with a homicide," said police.

After conducting interviews and gathering evidence, police followed leads to a residence in Petaluma where officers conducted a search today with assistance from the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office and Petaluma Police. Three people of interest have been detained in connection with the investigation.

The deceased person, described as a male aged 30 or 31, was discovered on the 500 block of Post Street between Mason and Taylor at 6:33pm.
