An unidentified man was killed Tuesday night in a shooting incident in the city's Hayes Valley neighborhood.

According to Officer Albie Esparza, officers were called to the 700 block of Grove Street just before 8 p.m. on reports of a shooting. When they arrived, they found the victim suffering from two gunshot wounds: one in his leg and one in his chest.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died a few hours later. Esparza said the cops have yet to determine a motive for the shooting, nor do they have a description of the suspect at this time.

The shooting marks the city's 63rd homicide this year. The night before Thanksgiving, 36-year-old Angelo Rodriguez was shot to death near the Sunnydale housing projects. That case remains under investigation.

  • 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.'"
