Medical authorities have identified the two men who were killed in separate shootings Friday night as 24-year-old Georgio Joseph and 54-year-old James Lee.

In the first death, officers were called to the 100 block of Broad Street in the Oceanview neighborhood at about 7:30 p.m. Friday on reports of a shooting. When officers arrived, they found Joseph in the street with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

Two hours later, police were sent to the 1100 block of Turk Street in the Western Addition, where they found Lee and a woman shot on the sidewalk.

Lee, a San Francisco resident, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died. The second victim, an unidentified 27-year-old woman, was treated at the hospital and is expected to survive, police said.

The cops have no further details about either murder, nor could they offer us suspect information and descriptions at this time.

The murders bring the city's homicide count to 26 this year.

  • 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.'"
