Teen fatally shot near Dolores Park in SF identified as SJSU student

(KRON) — A man who was shot near Mission Dolores Park Wednesday evening has been identified as Luis Arguello Inglis, a 19-year-old San Jose State student. SJ State officials confirmed to KRON4 on Saturday that Inglis was enrolled and majoring in communications studies.

The victim’s parents created a GoFundMe for Inglis, stating the following:

“We are deeply saddened to announce that our beloved son, Luis, was tragically taken from us on Wednesday evening. Luis was a bright light in our lives, filled with love, laughter and unlimited potential,” the GoFundMe said.

The San Francisco Police Department said Inglis was found Wednesday evening with multiple gunshot wounds, lying on the ground near Mission Dolores Park. Despite helping Inglis, the 19-year-old was clearly dead at the scene.

“His loss has left a hole in our hearts that can never be filled,” Inglis’ GoFundMe said, describing his loss as “unimaginable pain.”

The GoFundMe was intended to cover unexpected costs related to his death. The page has since surpassed its $10,000 goal by more than $15,000 according to this report.

District Eight Supervisor Rafael Mandelman said Dolores Park has faced public safety issues, but is generally a safe place in the city. “We cannot live in fear, but people must be aware of their surroundings,” the supervisor said.

Mandelman told KRON he asked San Francisco police to increase their presence around the park. “When there’s an incident like this, I think it’s appropriate that there are more police in that area over the summer,” Mandelman said.
