police searching for suspect in teen's fatal stabbing

This news is a couple of weeks old, but I didn't want to let it slip by... In San Francisco, police are looking for the man responsible for the February 8 murder of 16-year-old Victor Zheng, who was attacked and fatally stabbed while walking on the street in Ingleside: Teenage boy stabbed to death on S.F. street.

Zheng was walking with a friend when a man approached and punched him numerous times without provocation, then stabbed him the chest. It sounds completely senseless. Last week, police released a sketch of Zheng's killer, who is described as an Asian man, 18 to 19 years old:
The victim, Victor Zheng, and a friend were walking on the 500 block of Holloway Avenue about 10:45 p.m. Feb. 7 when a man walked up to Zheng and punched him numerous times without provocation, police said.

Zheng and his friend followed the man as he walked away. Near the corner of Ocean and Capitol avenues, the man turned and stabbed Zheng in the chest, then fled in a black two-door Honda with chrome rims, police said.

Zheng, who attended Balboa High School and City College of San Francisco, was pronounced dead at San Francisco General Hospital. His friend was not hurt.
