Wilfredo Reyes stepped into a San Francisco courtroom today to face charges that he played a role in killing Tony Bologna and two of his sons in June 2008. He waived his arraignment, which means he does not have to appear at that hearing tomorrow.

Reyes fled town soon after the drive-by shooting. Meanwhile, Edwin Ramos, who drove the car, was convicted of the murders and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Both Reyes and Ramos are alleged MS-13 gang members.

Ramos claimed that Reyes pulled the trigger from the passenger's seat, but Reyes was not questioned. Police did not issue a warrant for his arrest until this past March, when a witness in Ramos' trial testified that she met Reyes in South Carolina and that he told her he left California because he a passenger in a drive-by shooting.

Earlier this month, weeks after Ramos' sentencing, Reyes was arrested in North Carolina. He was extradited here last week. He faces first degree murder charges. District Attorney George Gascón has said that he will not seek the death penalty.

  • 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.'"
