The San Francisco Medical Examiner's office moments ago identified Wednesday's Richmond District murder victim as 37-year-old Travis Del Rio.

Del Rio was shot to death in a multi-unit dwelling on the 400 block of 23rd Avenue; police were alerted to gunshots at around 9 p.m. A black Mercedes was seen motoring away from the scene.

The Medical Examiner has not yet determined Del Rio's city of residence, meaning it is not yet certain if he was killed in his own apartment.

He was the city's 45th homicide this year and first since Medina Abdulkader was shot while walking through Japantown on Thanksgiving.

  • 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.'"
