Minutes before two merchants were found shot to death in Fisherman's Wharf, police officers were across town responding to another homicide in Potrero Hill.

At about 8:15 p.m. Sunday, a man was shot and killed on the 900 block of Connecticut Street, outside an apartment building. Police said the victim apparently got into a fight with two suspects.

The victim, who has not yet been identified, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died.

Police have arrested Antoine Gray, 29, and Toyia Taylor, 18, in connection with the shooting.

About five minutes later two merchants were shot and killed at a luggage and souvenir shop along Jefferson Street. Police arrested Hong Ri Wu, 54, on suspicion of shooting the two victims -- Qiong Han Chu, 30 and Feng Ping Ou, 3o.

The three shootings brings San Francisco's homicide rate to 11 this year.

  • 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.'"
