Investigators say acquaintances bound, gagged San Francisco couple

SAN FRANCISCO — A man who died after being beaten, shot, and bound and gagged in San Francisco had planned to relocate to the city from Georgia, a relative said.

Stephen Reid, 26, died Monday at a hospital hours after he and his girlfriend were found tied up in the middle of a street.

Police suspect they were victims of a brutal home invasion Sunday by a group of acquaintances in the city's Visitacion Valley neighborhood.

Reid had arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area in October and started dating the 18-year-old woman, his sister, Nicole Reid, told the San Francisco Chronicle,

His girlfriend is expected to survive her injuries.
