Garbage-Can-Kicking Man Shot in Chest

A 28-year-old man suffered life-threatening injuries after he was shot in the chest yesterday night as he yelled and screamed outside the suspect's house.

Police say the victim was walking down the street in the Bayview kicking garbage cans when the suspect's son told him to stop and go home. The victim went back to a house and then returned to the 1100 block of Gillman Avenue a few minutes later where he stood outside the suspect's home.

The victim was shouting and grabbing at his waistband when the suspect -- a 62-year-old man -- fired one shot, hitting the man in the chest, police said.

That's one way to get him to shut up.

Police were called to the scene, where they found a gun inside the victim's waistband. The suspect was arrested and booked into 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.'"
