San Francisco homicide detectives are investigating the killing of a 65-year-old man in his Nob Hill apartment.

Police say the man's body was found by officers called to do a welfare check around 6:15 p.m. Friday.

Few details have been released, but a police spokesman says there were what he termed "obvious signs of trauma" on the man's body.

The San Francisco medical examiner has identified the man, but has not released his name pending notification of relatives.
