Two more alleged muggers are under arrest in the unusual case of an armed IRS agent shooting down her purported attackers.

In addition to the alleged robber hospitalized Thursday morning after taking a bullet to the torso, San Francisco Police announce they've now arrested a suspect who was shot in the leg and another who avoided being struck by bullets. One of the men was armed with a shotgun during the abortive mugging, police say.

At a shade after midnight on Thursday, the trio of alleged muggers attempted to rob the 36-year-old IRS special agent on the 100 block of Marlin Court in Hunters Point, according to the SFPD. That transaction went about as poorly as any ill-conceived attempt to wrest away money from the Internal Revenue Service, however.

All three suspects are facing robbery charges. SFPD spokesman Sergeant Troy Dangerfield said the man with the shotgun will likely face stiffer charges.

  • 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.'"
