San Francisco homicide detectives arrested 21-year-old Davante Robinson and 21-year-old Gregory Morton III on suspicion of gunning down two teens as they sat inside a car parked at Crocker Amazon playground earlier this month.

According to police, 18-year-old Kenyatta Butler and 19-year-old Donzel Gaines were sitting inside a car parked adjacent to the soccer fields on the morning of March 9 when they were shot.  Butler was pronounced deceased at the scene and Gaines, who was shot multiple times, was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital where he later died.

On March 26, investigators tracked down and arrested Robinson and Morton on suspicion of the murders. The arrest came as a result of an investigative collaboration with Daly City Police Department and San Francisco Police Department’s Ingleside Station and Gang Task Force unit.

Due to pending identification matters, booking photos will not be released at this time.

Anyone with further information on the homicide is still encouraged to contact San  Francisco Police anonymously at 415-575-4444 or text-a-tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the start of the message.

Another man was murdered over the weekend at Crocker Amazon, however, police have not yet identified the victim.

  • 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.'"
