Police are investigating an early morning homicide in the city's Bayview neighborhood, where a 22-year-old man was shot in the head while in his car.

According to Officer Albie Esparza, the victim was driving near the intersection of Meade and La Conte at about 2 a.m. when he was shot in the head. His vehicle then crashed into another parked car, according to police.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he later died, Esparza said.

Medical authorities told us this morning that they have not yet identified the victim, nor did police have a suspect description at this time.

The shooting is the city's 29th homicide this year. The last murder was on May 26, when 18-year-old Deon Walker was shot to death along the unit block of Baldwin Court.

  • 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.'"
