San Francisco police have nabbed two men who they say are responsible for gunning down eight people in the city's Tenderloin District on Sunday.

On Monday, police arrested 25-year-old Curtis Warren and 24-year-old Verle Jones, both of San Francisco. The duo was booked into San Francisco County Jail and charged with eight counts of attempted murder as well as assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy, says Officer Albie Esparza.

On Sunday at about 9 p.m., a group of people were standing outside a store on the corner of Turk and Taylor streets when two gunmen in a silver Volkswagen Jetta sprayed the area with bullets.

Eight people were hit, but all are expected to survive, according to police.

The following day, authorities were able to track the two suspects down in Emeryville where they were arrested. Police found the vehicle involved in the shooting, but no weapons have been recovered at this time.

Police are not releasing booking photos at this time, pending identification matters.

If you witnessed this crime or if you know anything about it, call SFPD anonymously at (415) 575-4444 or text-a-tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the start of the message.

  • 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.'"
