Pier 14 on the Embarcadero has been the scene of two crimes in less than 24 hours.

Yesterday evening, a 31-year-old Pleasanton woman was shot and killed as she hung out with family on the pier. As the Examiner reports, the woman was shot in the upper torso and later died from her injuries at San Francisco General. Police detained a male person of interest at the Embarcadero and Townsend Street. San Francisco Police Department spokesperson Officer Carlos Manfredi told the Chronicle that the shooting was probably random.

Then, this morning, an NBC Bay Area news crew reporting on the incident was mugged and the photographer’s equipment stolen. As NBC reports, a black four-door BMW pulled up to the curb and “pistol-whipped” the photographer with a gun before stealing his camera gear. A KTVU reporter was also at the scene and had her equipment stolen too.

Stan Bunger, co-anchor of the KCBS Morning News, tweeted this photo of an ammo magazine left behind by the suspect who robbed the morning news crews:  

The suspect is described as an African-American man in his 20’s wearing a black hoodie.

  • 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.'"
