San Francisco police are asking for your help in tracking down the people who shot and killed 21-year-old Lawrence Richardson as he left a Western Addition grocery store earlier this year.

On April 2, about 10:30 p.m., Richardson was walking out of a corner store at Divisadero and Eddy streets when he was shot multiple times by several people. Lawrence, who is survived by his father and mother, had a 1-year-old girl at the time of his death, said Officer Carlos Manfredi.

This crime happened along a busy thoroughfare, in a thriving neighborhood, which means someone must have seen something, police said.

Homicide investigators are asking for any witnesses, or anyone with information about this murder and is willing to help police identify the shooters, to please contact SFPD immediately.

You can contact Inspector Velarde, Inspector Dedet, or Sgt. Warnke of the SFPD Homicide Detail at 553-1145 (weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Or if you want to remain anonymous, you can also use the anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or Text a Tip to "TIP411"and begin your text message with "SFPD."

  • 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.'"
