Police are investigating a multiple shooting in the Mission District late Monday night that left one with life-threatening injuries.

Media outlets are reporting that the shooting happened at about 11 p.m. at El Tin Tan Bar, located 3065 16th Street.

One man was taken to the hospital with critical injuries. The the other four victims are expected to survive, police said.

Today, the Examiner tells us about how increased police enforcement has

averted the gang violence in the Mission District.

Not so fast.

Cops are

investigating whether last night's shooting is related to the spike in

gang violence between Surenos and Nortenos in the neighborhood. 

They have not indicated a possible motive for the shooting.

  • 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.'"
