The San Francisco Police Department said in a news release that officers responded to a report of a person with a gunshot wound at 12: 09 p.m. at the intersection of Mansell Street and John F. Shelley Drive, two main routes through the park.

At the scene, officers were directed to the victim by bystanders, the statement said. They provided immediate medical aid and called for paramedics who provided additional life-saving measures, but were unable to revive the victim, police said.

No arrests were made. The incident is under investigation by the department’s homicide detail. The name of the deceased has not been released.

The Monday shooting marks the 27th homicide in the city since the start of the year. In 2021, there were 56 homicides, according to the police department’s crime dashboard. 

On the south side of San Francisco, McLaren Park features 313 acres of outdoor space with hiking trails passing through wooded areas, six playgrounds, an amphitheater and a reservoir.
