A San Francisco police officer had just finished his shift and was headed home when an unknown man shot at him early this morning.

Officer Albie Esparza told SF Weekly that the shooter walked up to the cop's car on Silver Avenue and Bayshore Boulevard and started shooting. The officer -- who has not been named -- drove off and the shooter got into a Cadillac and chased the officer.

The suspect continued shooting at the off-duty cop, missing the officer, but shattering windows of the officer's car.

 The suspect -- who was only described as a black man -- eventually drove away from the scene and has not been located.

  • 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.'"
