Medical authorities identified Richard Fowler Jr. as the man who was abruptly shot in the head Monday evening inside his home.

The 28-year-old Fowler was reportedly playing video games inside his house on the 400 block of Franconia Street when he was surprised by the gunman who fired one shot that hit Fowler in the head. His parents were upstairs when the shooting happened.

The suspect, Anthony Wright, 34, was arrested yesterday morning on suspicion of pulling the trigger and firing the shot that killed Fowler. 

Fowler reportedly knew Wright, who had said he was there to settle a score.

Wright was charged with murder and weapons-related crimes and has been booked in San Francisco County Jail.

  • 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.'"
