Medical authorities identified the man whom police shot and killed last week during a routine traffic stop in the Lower Nob Hill neighborhood as 33-year-old Steven Young.

Young, a San Carlos resident, was pulled over by San Francisco police at about 1:25 p.m. on Wednesday. As officers approached the car, Young got out of the vehicle and began running southbound on Larkin Street, according to police.

Halfway through the block, Young turned around and allegedly began shooting at the cops, who then fired back, hitting Young in the upper torso area, according to police.

Young died Thursday night at San Francisco General Hospital.

If you want to know more about what happened, come the Northern District Police Station this evening; Police Chief Greg Suhr is scheduled to discuss details of the shooting at a community forum. The meeting will begin at 4 p.m at 1125 Fillmore.

  • 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.'"
