An unidentified woman who died of gunshot wounds in the Tenderloin this weekend may be San Francisco's first homicide victim of 2020.

At approximately 3:51 a.m. on Sunday, January 5, Tenderloin Station officers responded to a call about a potential shooting at the intersection of O’Farrell and Larkin streets. They found the victim on the scene, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

The woman was taken to the hospital, where she later died from her injuries. No suspect has been identified in the incident, which is being investigated as a homicide.

Police declined to share the woman's age or identity, citing a pending investigation.

On Twitter, SFPD officers requested more information from the public: 

Update, 2:12 p.m.: A memorial to the victim has appeared at the site of the shooting, full of heartfelt messages from her family and friends. She is said to have been a 36-year-old woman. 

"You're more than loved," it reads. "You're in our hearts."
