The Medical Examiner's Officer said this afternoon that it was 18-year-old Jessie Edwards and 27-year-old Carl Bradley who were killed when gunfire erupted in the Bayview neighborhood earlier this week. 

According to police, the two men were riding dirt bikes along the 1400 block of La Salle Avenue Sunday evening when an unidentified person began shooting. In a fast attempt to escape the bullets, both men crashed their bikes at the scene.

When police arrived, they found both men severely injured; the cops confirmed one of them had been shot. Both Edwards and Bradley were taken to San Francisco General Hospital where they later died. 

The exact cause of death has not been confirmed for either victim. The SFPD is still waiting for the Medical Examiner's report, says Officer Albie Esparza.

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.'"
