Doing laundry is never a pleasant chore. It was particularly distressing for one San Francisco woman who was shot while washing her clothes.

Police say the 49-year-old woman got caught in crossfire early this morning as she hung her clothes to dry in front of her home on the 900 block of Connecticut.

The woman was hanging the laundry about 1:30 a.m. when she heard gunshots. Soon after, she felt a sting on her leg and realized she had been hit by a bullet.

The woman was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a non-life threatening injury to her leg.

No suspect description was available and no arrests have been made.

  • 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.'"
