A victim of an apparent robbery was gunned down in the Double Rock projects in Hunters Point in the pre-dawn hours this morning, marking the city's 38th homicide of the year.

The Medical Examiner's office would not release the name of the victim to SF Weekly, citing the need to notify family.

Police have released a broad description of the suspected killer: He is between 20 and 25 years old, roughly 6 feet tall, and weighing between 180 and 200 pounds.

This is the first homicide in San Francisco since a pair of men were slain in a Mission District pizzeria on Sept. 20.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
