Medical authorities identified the man who was gunned down in the Mission District yesterday morning as 28-year-old Jose Matias-Aguilon of San Francisco.

Police say they have arrested two suspects in connection to the shooting, 20-year-old Sterling Samm of San Pablo and a 14-year-old boy.

On Oct. 30, just after midnight, police were called to the intersection of 20th Street and South Van Ness Avenue regarding a possible shooting. Upon arrival, officers from Mission Police Station found Matias-Aguilon lying on the sidewalk and suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.

The victim was taken to a local hospital where he later died. Meanwhile, additional cops combed the area, looking for the shooters. Witnesses gave officers some helpful information, and subsequently, they detained four people

in the area of 21st and Folsom streets. The cops canvassed the

area and located evidence, including two hand guns and several

discarded articles of clothing on the 600 block of Shotwell Street.

Both suspects were booked on charges of murder and firearms possession. Police would not release booking photos at this time.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to call Inspector Dedet, Inspector Velarde, or Sgt. Warnke of the Homicide Detail at 553-1145, the anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD.

  • 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.'"
