Police are investigating a second homicide over the weekend, which claimed the life of a man in his 20s.

Officer Albie Esparza tells us that on Sunday about 4 p.m., officers were called to the 1200 block of Treat Street on reports of a shooting. When they arrived, they found an unidentified man shot to death.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. Uptown Almanac reports that the victim was "executed" in broad daylight. However, Esparza could not confirm that the victim was executed.

The Medical Examiner told SF Weekly that they have identified the victim, but would not release his name until they had contacted his family.

Police had no more information about the crime, including a possible suspect description. The shooting was the city's 50th homicide this year. On Saturday, 18-year-old Demariee Lewis was shot to death in the city's Bayview neighborhood. Police arrested a 17-year-old boy on suspicion of murdering Lewis, a Richmond resident.

Anyone with information on these cases is asked to contact the Homicide Detail at 553-1145, or

contact the anonymous tip line at 575-4444. You can also Text-a-Tip to Tip411.

  • 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.'"
