A man who was fatally stabbed Thursday on Market Street—at the edge of Hayes Valley and the Mission District—has been identified.

Angel Rosado, a 53-year-old from San Mateo County, died in the early morning attack, according to the San Francisco Chief Medical Examiner's Office.

Officers responded just after 1 a.m. to Market Street between Octavia and Laguna streets to a confrontation between two men and found one of them had been stabbed.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, they found Rosado with multiple stab wounds while having a heart attack, according to a spokesperson for the San Francisco Fire Department. He was given CPR but was pronounced dead at San Francisco General Hospital.
