San Francisco police are investigating a shooting in the Mission Friday as a homicide after the victim died in a nearby hospital, officials say.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has officially identified Damien Gonzalez, 18, of San Mateo County as the shooting victim and notified their next of kin.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting minutes after 3 p.m. Friday on the 2400 block of Harrison Street, down the block from John O'Connell Tech Soccer Field in the Mission, according to a news release sent early Saturday by SFPD.

When police arrived, officers said they found a victim suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Despite resuscitation attempts by police and paramedics, the victim died a short time later at a nearby hospital.

Police said officers have yet to arrest anyone in the case.
