Representatives of the District Attorney's office will meet with homicide inspectors Tuesday to decide on charges for Patrick Sullivan, 46, the alleged knife-wielding killer responsible for the death of a San Francisco man this morning.

The police arrested Sullivan in the wee hours at the Cadillac Market on Hyde and Eddy, claiming he was the man who killed William Quinn, a 40-year-old San Franciscan in what appears to be a brazen attack in the liquor store. Sullivan is currently in police custody awaiting charges.

SF Weekly has received indications that video footage of the incident may exist. 

This wouldn't be Sullivan's first brush with the law. The alleged

stabber was arrested "several years ago" for possession of a controlled

substance, and two instances of petty theft with a prior. None of the

cases were charged, said DA spokesman Brian Buckelew.

  • 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.'"
