The Fisherman's Wharf souvenir vendor who police say killed two rival merchants has been charged with two counts of murder, District Attorney George Gascon's office announced today.

Hong Ri Wu, 56, was charged in the shooting deaths of Feng Ping Ou and Qiong Han Chu, both 30. Wu allegedly murdered the pair, who owned a neighboring souvenir store on Jefferson Street, because they were selling knockoff purses similar to the ones he sold.
 
The killings allegedly took place on Sunday night after he finished his shift.

Wu is scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow in San Francisco Superior Court.

  • 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.'"
