Bloody Weekend: Two Men Shot in Head

After more than a month without a homicide, San Francisco may have several on its hands from the weekend -- if things go poorly for a number of shooting victims.

We wrote earlier about a suspected murder in the 900 block of Chestnut and a disturbing triple shooting in Potrero Hill that put a 20-year-old man, a 52-year-old grandfather, and his 3-year-old trick-or-treating granddaughter into the hospital.

But that's not the last of it.

Just shy of 1 a.m. on Sunday, shotspotters detected gunfire in the 1400 block of Newcomb Ave. in Bayview. When police arrived at the scene, they found a 30-year-old black man slumped over the wheel of his car with a gunshot wound to the head. Police tell SF Weekly he is in critical condition.

At 3:10 a.m. this morning, another man was shot, leaving him near death. On the 600 block of Holyoke, also in Bayview, police could only offer this rudimentary -- and chilling -- event description: "suspect approached victim from behind and shot him in the head."

The victim, a 24-year-old black man, suffered life-threatening wounds.

  • 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.'"
