Update (4:50 p.m.) Police arrested 34-year-old Anthony Wright on suspicion of killing a 28-year-old man who has not yet been identified. Media outlets are reporting that the victim was playing video games with his friends when Wright arrived and shot him in the head.

Update (11:00 a.m.) Officer Albie Esparza tells us that police have arrested a suspect in connection with the shooting. More details to come.

Police have very little information about a homicide last night where a 28-year-old man was shot and killed at a Bernal Heights home.

Police received a call at about 8:30 p.m. of reports of a shooting on the 400 block of Franconia Street. When they arrived they found the victim dead.

Police say the suspect shot the victim in the head and then fled the residence on foot. We called police to get more details. We will update you when we have more information.

The shooting death makes it San Francisco's 44th homicide this year. Yesterday, police shot and killed Peter Woo after he allegedly stabbed his parents, killing his mother, Nina.

  • 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.'"
