The San Francisco Medical Examiner has released the identity of the man gunned down in the wee hours this morning at Jones and O'Farrell: Steven Garrett, a 26-year-old San Franciscan.
Garrett was beaten and shot multiple times by two other black

twentysomething men at around 12:25 a.m. Police say a fight broke out

that culminated in his murder. Two suspects -- one of whom had

dreadlocks -- fled the scene on foot.

A semi-automatic pistol was recovered near the shooting site in a mailbox. The suspects remain at large.

Garrett is the city's 31st homicide victim of the year and first since German tourist Mechthild Schröer was shot dead when caught in a crossfire between gun-toting revelers in the Theater District on Aug. 8.

  • 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.'"
