Carlo Tateo was killed at 2 a.m. outside a nightclub near 11th and Folsom in San Francisco. Police say he was with a group of people when two men began harassing a woman in the group. Tateo was shot after he asked the men to move on.

SFPD Commander of Investigations Greg McEachern called it "a senseless homicide." He identified three persons of interest in the case, two black men and one black woman, and released video of them hanging out near 11th and Folsom for at least an hour before the killing.
The victim's mom, Sonja Tateo, is asking anyone with information to come forward.
"I just want the public to know that we need your help," she said.
