SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Police say they’ve detained a person of interest Wednesday evening in connection with a fatal shooting that took the life of a 31-year-old woman on Pier 14 in San Francisco’s South Beach neighborhood.

Around 6:30 p.m. officers responded to the vicinity of Embarcadero and Mission Street and found a woman suffering from at least one gunshot wound to the upper torso.

The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital where she was later pronounced dead, according to police.

Police said she was walking with her family at the time when she was shot.

Officers flooded the area and detained a subject matching the description of a “possible person of interest” on the corner of Embarcadero and Townsend. That individual is currently being investigated, according to police.
