Man Shot and Killed During Argument in the Mission; Homicide No. 35

Posted By on Tue, Sep 6, 2011 at 8:00 AM

The Mission District suffered a grim holiday when a man was shot and killed Monday morning in what witnesses described as a heated argument. It's the neighborhood's third murder in the last seven days.

Medical authorities told SF Weekly they have not yet identified the victim, who was only described as a 45-year-old black man. Police say the argument took place sometime around 2 a.m. on the corner of Guerrero and Camp streets. Witnesses heard shouting and then several gun shots.

When police arrived they found the victim dead by a tree.

The man had been shot twice -- one in the the head and once in the chest, according to news reports.

Last week, a 22-year-old father was shot in the head while he was taking a smoke break during his shift at Hog and Rocks restaurant near 19th and San Carlos. Police say he was mistaken for a gang member, which he is not.

That same night a known gang member was shot and killed on Hampshire street. Monday's shooting is the city's 35th homicide of the 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.'"
