A pair of Balboa High School students are in serious trouble over a selfie posted to Facebook in which the two teens pose for a picture -- in the school bathroom, of course -- with a loaded handgun.

It's not really certain how police determined that the gun was loaded when the two boys took the picture. But that gun and other weapons found at the boy's home -- all of which belonged to an older relative, police said -- have all been confiscated.

Cops determined that they had brought the gun to school for the sole purpose of the lavatory photography opportunity. Following their arrest, the boys have yet to be charged with any crimes. They do face "mandatory expulsion," however. The boys' identities have not been released, and SF Weekly only briefly searched high school kids' Facebook profiles for a peek at the offending picture.

  • 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.'"
