San Francisco police arrested two men in connection with the death of 22-year-old Calvin Sneed who was shot as he drove through the Bayview last week.

According to Sgt. Michael Andraychak, Lupe Mercado, 37, and Barry Gilton, 38, both of San Francisco, were arrested on Friday on suspicion of homicide. The two were booked into San Francisco County Jail.

On June 4 about 2 a.m., Sneed was driving along Le Conte and Mead Street in the Bayview when he was shot in the head, causing his car to crash into another parked vehicle, police said.

When police arrived, they found Sneed, a Compton resident, suffering

from a gunshot wound. He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital

where he later died.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Sgt. Braconi, Sgt. Watts, Inspector Jones, or Inspector Cunningham of the SFPD Homicide Detail at 553-1145.

Police would not release booking photos yet, saying there are still pending identification issues.

  • 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.'"
