Medical authorities have identified the man who was shot to death during a heated argument last week as 26-year-old Reynaldo Cordova.

Cordova, a San Francisco resident, was on 23rd and Harrison streets on Friday morning when he got into a verbal fight with three men. One of the suspects pulled out a handgun and shot Cordova four or five times in the back before the three jumped into a green Subaru and drove off.

Cordova died at the scene, according to police.

Police still have very little information about the suspects, other than they were three Hispanic males -- the shooter was described as being between 16 and 18 years old.

The shooting was San Francisco's 45th homicide this year. On Oct. 3, Richard Fowler Jr., 28, was shot in the head as he played video games inside his parent's Bernal Heights home. Police arrested 34-year-old Anthony Wright on suspicion of killing Fowler, whom he knew.

  • 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.'"
