Authorities have identified the teen who was shot to death in the Bayview this weekend as 18-year-old Deon Walker.

At about 2:15 a.m. on Saturday, neighbors called police, saying they had heard several gunshots in the area. Police arrived to the unit block of Baldwin Court where they found Walker dead.

Police had no more information to provide at this time, including a suspect description.

The shooting death is the city's 28th homicide this year. Earlier this month, 21-year-old William Castillo of San Francisco was shot to death near the Sunnydale Housing Projects.

  • 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.'"
