The first crime happened on Friday at about 10:26 p.m., when police responded to a shot spotter activation on the 1000 block of Mendell. When officers arrived, they found a 20-year-old man who had been shot in the chest.

Officers performed CPR until paramedics arrived; however, the man was pronounced dead at the scene. As of Monday morning, the Medical Examiner's Office had not identified the victim. Police have made no arrests, nor did they have any suspect description at this time.

The shooting marks the city's 59th homicide this year.

His friend took him to the hospital where he's suffering from life-threatening head injuries. Witnesses told the cops the victim got jumped outside the bar by a group of men who took turns kicking him in the head.

  • 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.'"
