San Francisco Police officers shot and killed a man on 3rd Street in the Bayview around 5:00 p.m. today, the San Francisco Examiner reports

Examiner reporter Michael Barba is on the scene.  Witness video uploaded to Instagram appears to show the moments before the shooting. In the video, which appears to have been taken from inside a Muni train, a man appears to be walking slowly along the sidewalk, while five or more uniformed officers appear to point weapons at him.

A woman's voice can be heard shouting, "Just drop it." 

What sounds like a single gunshot is fired, followed by an approximately five second pause, and then a barrage of ten or more gunshots can be heard. 

The video is embedded below, but please be warned that it is graphic and may be disturbing.

  • 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.'"
