An unidentified suspect allegedly stabbed a woman to death yesterday at an Ingleside Heights church before attempting suicide.

Police responded to a domestic violence call at Chinese Christian Church (10 Chester Ave.) at 2:11pm and found a 37-year-old woman suffering from a stab wound, along with a 42-year-old man who appeared to have multiple self-inflicted injuries.

According to SFGate, witnesses said the suspect and victim argued outside the church before the attack. 

Both parties were transported to a hospital for treatment, but the female victim succumbed to her injuries. The suspect is still hospitalized, and the department's Homicide Detail is investigating the matter.

Anyone who has information about this incident is encouraged to contact SFPD via the department's anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444, or text TIP411 with "SFPD" at the start of the message.
