San Francisco police are still looking for the person who gunned down a 19-year-old man on Saturday evening. Meanwhile, police say the teen, who had been suffering life-threatening injuries, will survive.

On Saturday, at about 7:15 p.m., the cops were called out to the 800 block of Market Street on reports of a shooting. When they arrived, they found the victim laying at the entrance of the BART station with multiple gunshot wounds, says Officer Gordon Shyy.

Witnesses reportedly scattered to the underground portion of the station, attempting to hop the next train. Others fled to the nearby Westfield Mall. Police quickly closed down the BART station and riders were evacuated, according to press reports. Some of those near the scene described the incident via Twitter: And more tweets came in: The suspect also fled the scene. He is described as a black man in his teens or 20s and last seen wearing a white t-shirt. Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to call the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 553-8090.

  • 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.'"
