    Ronnie Tiger died 10 years after he was shot in San Francisco's Bayview district.

    A man who was shot in San Francisco's Bayview District 10 years ago succumbed to his injuries last month, and the Police Department's homicide unit is investigating, a police sergeant said.

    Ronnie Tiger, 30, passed away on Sept. 24 from injuries he suffered when a man shot him in the 4900 block of Third Street on April 16, 2001, at around 7 p.m., police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said.
    Tiger was shot by a man wearing a ski mask who drove away from the scene in a burgundy-colored van that contained as many as three other suspects, Andraychak said.

    The San Francisco medical examiner's office found that Tiger's death was caused by complications from the gunshot wounds.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the department's tip line at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411.
