A man peppered with gunfire Saturday night as he sat in his car was not the victim of a haphazard shooting, police told SF Weekly.

A 27-year-old Caucasian was hit with multiple shots in front of his residence in the 500 block of Noriega late Saturday, and forced into overnight surgery. "The suspect is known in this case," said police spokesman Albie Esparza. "It was not a random shooting." The alleged shooter is also described as a 27-year-old white man. A second suspect, who may or may not be an accomplice, is also believed to be a twentysomething Caucasian.

Some manner of verbal altercation between the suspect and the victim precipitated the weekend shooting in the Sunset, not far from Grand View Park. How long the men have known each other is not yet known.

The victim, who received multiple gun wounds in his lower body, is expected to survive.

  • 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.'"
