Medical authorities identified the man who was shot and killed early Sunday morning as Joshua McClain, a 23-year-old Richmond resident.

At about 2 a.m., McClain was shot multiple times in the Jessie Street alley near several downtown nightclubs.

Another man was shot and taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries. The shooter, who is described as a black man in his 20s, fled the scene.

Police are still investigating the murder, which is San Francisco's 18th homicide. Earlier this month Parrish Broughton, 20, died after he was found shot inside a car in Diamond Heights.

  • 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.'"
