San Francisco's Medical Examiner has identified the man shot dead yesterday in Bayview as 29-year-old city resident Tony Lewis.

Police responding to reports of multiple gunshots discovered Lewis dead in a vehicle* yesterday at around 6:40 p.m. in the 700 block of Jerrold Avenue. There have not been any arrests, and police have not yet indicated there's any information available about the suspect.

Lewis is the city's eighth homicide of the year and the first since San Francisco's bloody weekend, in which Tuan Nguyen was stabbed to death and 19-year-old Lawon Hall was shot dead in front of Suede nightclub.

*The SFPD have determined that the car Lewis was discovered in was not his own. Spokesman Wilfred Williams told SF Weekly the police know whose car it is, but are not ready to release that information at this point.

  • 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.'"
