Medical authorities this morning released the name of the man who died after he was found gagged and bound as 26-year-old Stephen Reid.

Reid and an unidentified woman were found on Sunday at about 8:30 p.m. laying in the 900 block of Brussels Street tied and gagged. Both victims were unconscious and taken to San Francisco General Hospital where Reid died that night.

The female victim, who is possibly in her late teens or early 20s, is still in critical condition, yet authorities say they expect her to survive.

Investigators are still trying to determine how Reid died -- whether he was shot or killed from blunt force trauma. "No one saw or heard anything," Officer Albie Esparza told reporters.

The slaying was the city's 65th homicide this year.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is urged to contact SFPD at 575-4444 anonymously or 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.'"
