It was a violent Memorial Day in San Francisco where two people were stabbed at a construction site and three others were shot during a drive-by shooting yesterday.

At about 2 p.m., police responded to Geary Boulevard and Larkin Street regarding a double stabbing. Police say a homeless man was urinating in public at a construction site where two workers were on the job. The construction workers asked the man to zip it up and leave. Instead, the homeless man pulled out a knife and slashed them both, according to Officer Gordon Shyy.

One of the victims was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a serious stab wound. The suspect was later found and arrested, police say.

Three hours later, police raced out to Keith and Palou streets in the Bayview regarding a shooting that was picked up on the Shot Spotter. When police arrived, they found two victims with gunshot wounds. A third victim had been taken to the hospital by a witness, Shyy says.

One of the victims later died. As of this morning, medical authorities were not releasing the name of the deceased victim.

Police believe this was a drive-by shooting.

Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact police anonymously at 575-4444.

  • 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.'"
