Counselors at Thurgood Marshall Academic High School are organizing grief sessions for friends of 16-year-old Andy Zeng, who was found murdered over the weekend, according to media outlets.

Police found Zeng's body with a gunshot wound and doused in gasoline at about 4:30 a.m. on Sunday. They first believed it was a suicide, but quickly determined the boy had been killed. It is the city's 20th homicide this year.

Police have arrested four juveniles in connection with the homicide. They are still looking for one more suspect.

Zeng's body was found at a two-story home on the 2100 block of Quesada Avenue in the Silver Terrace neighborhood. Zeng did not live there, police said.

Police arrested a 15-year-old boy on suspicion of murder. Three others boys -- aged 15, 16, and 17 -- were arrested on charges of conspiracy and attempted arson.

Lieutenant Troy Dangerfield told SF Weekly this morning that he did not know a motive, nor did he have any more details on the case.

  • 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.'"
