The San Francisco Police Department has told the media that arrests have been made in the murder of 51-year-old Winston Coleman, who was shot dead on Third Street and Galvez Avenue in the wee hours Sunday morning.

Coleman is the 19th homicide victim in San Francisco this year; the last was Levit Chavez, who was stabbed to death May 24 in his Bayview District home, allegedly by his adult son.

At this time, it is unclear what Coleman was doing out on the streets of Bayview at 1:55 a.m. when the fatal bullets were fired, or what his relationship was to the people accused of his murder.

  • 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.'"
