Authorities have identified the teen who was killed in a triple shooting in the city's Bayview neighborhood over the weekend as 17-year-old Jaquan Morton.

Morton, a San Francisco resident, was shot in the chest Friday evening, along with two other teens. Police say the other victims, ages 18 and 19, were shot in the shoulder and wrist and are expected to survive.

Police were called to the corner of Griffith and Palou just before 9 p.m., where they found the three teens shot with a handgun.

Morton was dead when police arrived, and the other two victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Police have no leads or a description of the shooter.

Friday's shooting was the city's 20th homicide this year. Earlier this month, 21-year-old Lawrence Richardson was shot to death as he walked out of corner store on Eddy Street.

Anyone with information about Friday night's murder is asked to call police at 575-4444 or text information to TIP411.

  • 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.'"
