San Francisco police are investigating two separate shootings in less than eight hours that left a Modesto man dead.

According to police, the first shooting happened just before 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. Police say the 19-year-old victim was sitting inside a car with a friend at Evans and Middlepoint roads when he was shot three times -- twice in the back of the head and once in the hand.

Sgt. Danielle Newman says police have no suspect description at this time.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

About six hours later, on Sunday morning, police were called to the 1800 block of Post Street where a man was shot to death outside a nightclub near Japantown.

Newman says the victim, who was later identified by the Medical Examiner's Officer as David Gilford III of Modesto, was standing on the sidewalk after the club closed when he was shot.

Police have no suspect information for this shooting

Anyone with information should call homicide investigators at 553-1145.

  • 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.'"
