A 26-year-old man was shot and killed last night after he got into a verbal argument with three men in the Mission District.

According to police, the victim, who has not yet been identified, was on Harrison and 23rd streets at about 1:40 a.m. Friday when the fight started. The shooter fired four or five shots, hitting the victim in the back. The suspects drove off in a green Outback Subaru headed north on Harrison Street.

When police arrived, the victim was dead.

Police had very little information about the suspects, other than they were three Hispanic males, one was described as 16 to 18 years old.

The shooting is San Francisco's 45th homicide this year. On Oct. 3, Richard Fowler Jr., 28, was shot in the head as he played video games inside his parent's Bernal Heights home. Police arrested 34-year-old Anthony Wright on suspicion of killing Fowler, whom he knew.

  • 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.'"
