San Francisco police are asking for your help in locating the man who shot another man inside a Visitaction Valley Happy Donuts earlier this week. Police say it's urgent, as the suspect could be dying from wounds he got during the robbery.

On Monday just before 3 a.m., the armed robber walked into the pastry shop on the 2600 Block of Bayshore Boulevard where he attempted to rob the owner who pulled out his own knife, police said.

During the robbery the two men fought until the robber shot the victim. The victim stabbed the robber pretty badly in the chest before he bolted the scene, police said. Police say the robber definitely had life-threatening injuries and suspect he might die if he's not given medical treatment.

The suspect is described as a possible bald black male approximately 30 to 40 years old; he's between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10 with a thin build. The suspect was last seen wearing black clothing and had stab wounds in his chest.

Anyone with information is asked to contact San Francisco Police Criminal Investigation Unit Inspector Jim Garrity at (415) 553-9002, the Department Operations Center at (415) 553-1071, or call the SFPD Anonymous Tip Line at (415) 575-4444 or "Text-a-Tip" at TIP411. Please reference "SFPD" in the subject line.

  • 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.'"
