Update 11:50 a.m.: Police say the driver had car trouble and was walking to a nearby gas station when he spotted the victim slumped over. The victim, who was able to talk, asked the man to drive him to the hospital. The victim later told police he had been shot when in fact he had multiple stab wounds to his face and torso. He is expected to survive. 

Original Story (10:20 a.m.): Police are investigating a mysterious stabbing that occurred yesterday morning in the Portola neighborhood.

According to Officer Gordon Shyy, a driver was passing by the intersection of San Bruno and Paul avenues just before 8:30 a.m. on Sunday when he spotted a man lying on the street with multiple stab wounds.

The driver grabbed the victim -- who was only described as a 48-year-old man -- and drove him to San Francisco General Hospital, where he's being treated for life-threatening injuries.

The cops had no further information on this incident, but we will tell you more when we know more.

  • 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.'"
