San Francisco Police spokesman Sergeant Neville Gittens said there is no more information to be released regarding an unidentified man discovered dead at around 2:30 this morning on the 800 block of Stanyan Street.

More information may be forthcoming later this morning and the San Francisco Medical Examiner's office told SF Weekly they hope to have the body identified -- and the family notified -- by 4 p.m.

The death is being investigated as a potential homicide. As of now, the man's age, race, and probable method of death have not been released. If police determine the death to be a homicide, it would be the city's 21st this year, and first since 30-year-old Emanuel Evans was shot to death in Bayview on May 31.

Stay tuned.

  • 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.'"
