The man who was shot early Wednesday morning at the Sunnydale Housing projects has died. Medical authorities have identified the victim as 22-year-old Darius Williams of Pinole.

According to Officer Albie Esparza, police were called to the 100 block of Blythedale just before 6 a.m. on reports of a man shot. When officers arrived, they found Williams lying on the street with multiple gunshot wounds.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries, but later died, Esparza said.

Police have no leads, nor do they have any suspect information at this time. Esparza says the shooting marks the city's 35th homicide this year. Last week, 39-year-old Allen Vance and 20-year-old Chastity Dollison, both of San Francisco, were shot to death in the Bayview.

Anyone with information related to this incident is asked to contact the anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or Text-a-Tip to TIP411 and include SFPD in the subject line.

  • 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.'"
