A 68-year-old man was shot to death Friday on scenic Christmas Tree Point Road in the shadow of Sutro Tower, the Medical Examiner reports.

The man has been identified, but the Medical Examiner's office is not releasing his name until notifying his next-of kin. The ME has also not yet released a ruling on whether this was a homicide.

After more than a month without any violent deaths, San Francisco is coming off a bloody week. Maximo Farjado, Jr. is accused of strangling Barbara McIver, an 87-year-old resident of the convalescent home where Farjado worked; Farjado then led police on a Hollywood-worthy chase about town. Also, 83-year-old Huan Chen died after being hospitalized on Jan. 24 following a mugging and 28-year-old Deoaunta Lyons was senselessly shot dead in broad daylight, in full view of his extended family

  • 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.'"
