Two people were rushed to the hospital this afternoon after being stabbed right outside the Hall of Justice -- the same government building that houses the San Francisco Police headquarters.

Officer Gordon Shyy said that at about 3:30 p.m, some cops were in front of the Hall of Justice, located at 850 Bryant, when a stabbing victim flagged them down. The victim was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital and his/her condition is unknown at this time.

As the officers combed the scene for a suspect, a second stabbing victim flagged them down, pointing out the suspect to the cops.

"The suspect brandished a knife and approached the officer," Shyy said. "The officer exercised extreme caution and restraint to not fire upon the suspect that possibly was in crisis."

The suspect was taken into custody without incident, Shyy added.

The second stabbing victim was also rushed to San Francisco General Hospital.

Police would not release the suspect's identity at this time.

  • 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.'"
