Police are investigating a triple shooting in the city's Bayview neighborhood over the weekend, which left one man dead and two others injured.

On Friday at about 8:46 p.m., police were called to the intersection of Griffith and Palou where they found three teens who had been shot with a handgun. The first victim, an 18-year-old who has not yet been identified, had been shot in the chest and was dead when police got there.

Two more victims, one 18 and another 19 years old, were shot in the shoulder and wrist, and were taken to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Police have no leads, nor were they able to given suspect descriptions at this time. Medical authorities are still trying to locate the family of the teen who died.

Friday's shooting was the city's 20th homicide this year. Earlier this month, 21-year-old Lawrence Richardson was shot to death as he walked out of corner store on Eddy Street.

Anyone with information about Friday night's murder is asked to call police at 575-4444 or text information to TIP411.

  • 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.'"
