Police are investigating a suspected homicide on the 1000 block of Bush Street, where an elderly man was found dead inside an apartment.

At about 6:14 p.m. on Friday, police were called to the apartment to do a welfare check. When they arrived, they found the body of  67-year-old Jack Baker of San Francisco.

Police told reporters that there were obvious signs of trauma on the man's body, leading them to believe that the man had been killed.

The San Francisco Medical Examiner's office has identified the man but will not release his name until his family is notified.

  • 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.'"
