Posted By on Tue, Sep 18, 2012 at 7:16 AM

Medical authorities have identified the man who was shot to death on Sunday afternoon in the city's Mission District as 20-year-old Jesus Solis.

Tipsters alerted media outlets about the 4 p.m. shooting on Treat Street, claiming Solis, whose hometown is not known, had been killed execution-style.

However, police have not been able to confirm that was the case, not could they provide any more details about the circumstances of his death.

Officer Albie Esparza tells us that investigators are looking into whether the shooting was gang-related. It was the 50th homicide this year. Last year at this time, San Francisco had a total of 37 homicides, police say.

Anyone with information on this murder is asked to contact the Homicide Detail at 553-1145, or

  • 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.'"
