Posted By on Tue, Dec 3, 2013 at 1:02 PM


An unidentified man was shot and killed this morning in the Portola neighborhood, about a block away from an elementary school.

Officer Albie Esparza told us that the shooting happened at about 10:44 a.m. at Burrow and Holyoke streets near E.R. Taylor Elementary School. The man was shot multiple times and later died, Esparza said.

The elementary school was placed on lockdown, however all the kids and school staff are safe. According to the Chron, some of the kids might be missing recess today.

"[The schools] do that typically when there's a shooting," Esparza said.

Esparza had no suspect information 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.'"
