Police are looking for at least one gunman who opened fire in the city's Bayview neighborhood last night, killing two motorcyclists who died while trying to dodge the bullets. 

Officer Gordon Shyy says that at about 5:15 p.m., police responded to a shooting on the 1400 block of La Salle Avenue — the same street where two others were killed last month. When police arrived, they found two people severely injured.

Both victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital where they later died. Police say the two victims were riding on motorcycles in the area when gunfire erupted. They crashed their bikes while attempting to flee the violence. Police confirmed that one of the victims had a gunshot wound, however, it's not yet clear whether the victims died as a result of the collision or the gunfire. 

The Medical Examiner's has not identified the victims as of this morning. 

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact SFPD at (415) 575-4444.

  • 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.'"
