Just seven hours after a shooting erupted on a Mission District corner, police quickly arrested a Hayward teen accused of pulling the trigger.

At about 9:40 a.m., two men got off a Muni bus at the corner of 16th and Folsom streets and got into an argument with a group of African American males. As they fought, one of the men pulled out a gun and fired several rounds, aiming at the two victims who had just gotten off the bus, police said.

One of the victims, who has not been identified, was shot and taken to San Francisco General Hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. 

Witnesses called police and gave a description of the shooter. Officers canvassed the neighborhood and eventually located the three suspects, a 16-year-old San Francisco resident, a 16-year-old Pittsburgh resident, and a 17-year-old Hayward resident, who police identified as the alleged shooter.

He was charged with attempted murder, carrying a concealed weapon, and carrying a loaded firearm.

  • 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.'"
