The San Francisco Medical Examiner confirmed to SF Weekly the identity of the man stabbed to death Sunday at his Bayview District home, allegedly by his own son: 49-year-old Levit Chavez.

Chavez' 22-year-old son, Levit Chavez Jr., is being held in connection with his father's stabbing death and the near-fatal stabbing of the elder Chavez' longtime girlfriend at 47 Ceres Street near Third Street; the alleged assailant was arrested after taking refuge at a nearby Walgreens.

Chavez is the 18th homicide victim in the city this year and the first since Andre Fluker was stabbed to death in the hallway of the Tenderloin's Dalt Hotel on May 8.

  • 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.'"
