SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5/BCN) — A man was shot dead Thursday afternoon by a gunman who chased him into a coffee shop at Polk and Geary streets, according to police.

Officers indicated that the 25-year old victim was shot multiple times.  He was identified by the medical examiner’s office as Terry Turner, a San Francisco resident.

Authorities said the gunman fled the shooting scene on foot.

According to police, an unknown male suspect chased Turner into a coffee shop in the 900 block of Polk Street around 4:20 p.m.

The suspect shot Turner multiple times in the abdomen and head with a handgun, and then fled, police said. Turner was pronounced dead at the scene.

A bag was also taken from Turner, according to police.

Police were looking for a suspect described as a 30-year-old black male, 6′, 190 lbs. with short hair and a scruffy beard. The man was wearing a green ski or cargo jacket and dark-colored pants.

    And probably a Democrat too. Perhaps Senator Feinstein could propose banning Democrats from possessing firearms? After all, historically most criminals who commit homicide are of the liberal persuasion.

    Tours Martel, you are so WRONG! The public servants who have been shot and killed in America have been the liberals. John Kennedy and his brother Bobby, John Lennon, Martin Luther King, Jr., and the recent killings in Tucson. The right wing haters have been the killers or have encouraged it.

    1. T says:

      According to Joanne, the killers are right wing. I guess the suspect in this killing is also a right wing killer — 30-year-old black male, 6′, 190 lbs. with short hair and a scruffy beard. Liberals are all nuts.

    2. keep right says:

      Lesson for the libs: JFK was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald, a self professed marxist.

    3. keep right says:

      Another lesson for the libs: Bobby Kennedy was killed by Sirhan Sirhan, a LIBERAL radical Palistinian angry over Bobby’s support of Israel.

      Dont ya hate it when facts get in the way.

    4. keep right says:

      Lesson for the libs: John Lennon was killed by Mark David Chapman. He was crazy, and more importantly, apolitical.

  3. m says:

    Why cant the police find the killer? I live in this area and am now afraid to walk my dog. This killer is. probably the same man responsible for the two other killings in this area in the last month. What are the police doing to stop this violent spike???? The news never follows up on these extraordinary murders will you reporters actually be more informative please…?

    1. Randy Fleming says:

      Remember the Zebra Killers of the 1970’s? …NOI ‘Angels of Death’ who’re
      beatified even today as then , practically , by white ‘radiclibs/progs’ and
      the Pelosi’s of the time? Could this guy be…no , not if they’re (victims) blacks , I guess….

  4. fiengold says:

    Cannot forget the right wing rednecks ! Or there inbreeding families.

  5. Joanne says:

    Oh, and I forgot to add the former Mayor of S.F. George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk, to the list of liberals shot and killed by right wing extremists.

    1. Randy Fleming says:

      Dan White was a ‘New Deal Democrat’ ..Irish catholic and very much
      proud of his , then anyway , wonderful little city…glad he’s not here
      to see it in it’s very sad (diversity) shape , today!

  6. Armando Morales says:

    Get rid of the crack dealing and we then get rid of the crime, Crack head city , the killing is not the root of the problem , it is the cops allowing the riff raff and dope dealing happen , the killings and robberys are the side effect.

  7. TheMan says:

    Damnit Palin, stop it!

  8. nin says:

    Im a right wing mexican, american born , make a case now you libs.

  9. TinaV says:

    You all are idiots. What has happened is so sad, and instead of being angry about it you are posting comments like idiots. I am sorry that this man was gunned down. How scary in that this can happen in broad daylight. I hope the police get this guy.

  10. tn says:

    Did he at least get a chance to eat his meal first? Seriously, prayers to the victim’s family and do hope the criminal is caught. Mayor Ed Lee could develop a free daily shuttle from SF to Oakland, for criminals to take their crimes elsewhere. The odds of Oakland enforcement and incarceration are in the criminals’ favor. The cost of transportation is minuscule when compared to the social service costs of investigation, ambulatory, administration and public relations.

  11. Randy Fleming says:

    @ Joanne: I suppose the ‘Zebra killings’ of the 1970’s were also done by right wingers? Diversity sounds good in theory but in actuallity….Most all the killings
    of 2011 so far have been blacks , typically with criminal records..So it’s not
    all bad news all the time..

  12. Smash Crasher says:

    Typical black leftist hating and bigoted, racist Democratic killer.

  13. Bob says:

    Anyone know the name of the victim?

  14. Paulette Turner says:

    I am the wife of the victum Terry B. Turner Jr. We have a 2 yearold daughter Terriana, and my 14 year old son that became a son to Terry. I don’t want my kids to know, and Terry was all we had…. Please people watch what you say and how you say it because Whatever the cause is to this is unknown to me, but the Terry Turner I married was beautiful person and a good fathe!!!!1

    1. Randy Fleming says:

      Don’t care enough to want to hear it..You people are a trainwreck and that’s it.. A complete and total disaster and danger to all around you and everything you come in contact with. 46 yrs of LBJ’s ‘great society’ has done this and nothing’s going to change it. Fact!!.. want my city back!!
