San Francisco police arrested two brothers today, saying they're responsible for slaying two men in separate shootings yesterday morning.

Homicide investigators nabbed 22-year-old Kenyon Norbert and his younger brother, 21- year-old Kishawn Norbert and charged them for the murders of Willie Cain, 24, and 30-year-old Keith Zinn.

On Monday, just before 3 a.m., Cain was shot in the head on the unit block of Brookdale Avenue near the city's Sunnydale housing projects. About six hours later, gunfire erupted again nearly five miles away on the unit block of Ironwood Way in the city's Bayview District.

When police arrived, they found Zinn laying in the street with gunshot wounds. He died several hours later.

The Norbert brothers were detained early this morning on Third Street in the Bayview and booked at the San Francisco County Jail on two counts of murder and probation and parole violations.

According to Officer Albie Esparza, the victims did not know each other and the violence was not gang-related. "The only relations between the two homicides is that they were committed by the same suspects," Esparza tells us.

These are still open and active investigations so no booking photos will be released at this time. If you witnessed these shootings, or have information about them please contact San Francisco Police 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.'"
