Authorities have identified the man who was killed in a double shooting in the Potrero Hill neighborhood as 24-year-old Jimmy Chandler.

At about 7:50 p.m., Chandler was inside a car with a woman on the intersection of 23rd and Arkansas when both were shot, said Officer Gordon Shyy.

Chandler and the female victim, also in her 20's, were taken to San Francisco General Hospital; Chandler died there. The woman is being treated for gunshot wounds to her arms and legs, and is expected to survive.

When police arrived at the scene, a large crowd had gathered around the crime scene, and additional cops were dispatched to deal with the crowds, Shyy said.

Police were unable to provide suspect information at this time. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call 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.'"
