Police identified the 38-year-old man who was killed Saturday night after a taxi allegedly blew a red light as Edmund Capalla.

Capalla was walking in a crosswalk on Eddy and Larkin streets when the cabbie ran a red light, hit another car, and spun out before hitting the man, said Officer Albie Esparza.

Capalla was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he later died.

The District Attorney's Office has not yet decided whether to file charges against the cabbie.

  • 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.'"
