Update: (1 p.m.) Medical authorities identified the man who was shot to death last night as 30-year-old Rory Jones, an Oakland resident. Police told reporters that Jones was sitting in his car when the suspect approached him and asked him if he had any "weight" -- a street term for drugs.

When Jones said he didn't, the man shot him and ran off. Jones got out of the car and ran down the street until he collapsed. He died a half-hour later.

Original story (9:30 a.m.): A 30-year-old man was shot to death last night while sitting in his car in the Bayview.

According to police, the victim was at the corner of Revere and Jennings at about 8:20 p.m. when the shooter fired at him, hitting him in the chest.

When police arrived, the man was already dead.

The suspect was described as a black man in his 20s. Police had no more information on the incident. 

The shooting was San Francisco's second homicide this year. The first homicide occurred last week when 30-year-old Joseph Minozzi was stabbed to death in San Francisco's SOMA district.

  • 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.'"
