San Francisco police are looking for two gun-toting men who forced their way into a residence in the Mission Terrace neighborhood this morning where one person was shot.

Officer Albie Esparza told us the home invasion happened at 10:39 a.m. on the 200 block of San Juan Avenue. He's not sure how the suspects got into the house, but once they were inside, they took jewelry and cash before firing at one of the victims.

Fortunately, the bullet only grazed the victim's head, Esparza said. The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he's expected to survive.

Esparza had very little suspect information at this time, but said both were men in their 20s; one was wearing a gray hoodie while the other had red sneakers. "Thankfully, the victim wasn't as hurt as they could have been," Esparza said.

Anyone who has any information about this home invasion is asked to contact SFPD at 575-4444, or text a tip to TIP411, and begin the 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.'"
