The San Francisco Police Department released the names of the officers who fired their weapons at Mario Woods on Dec. 2, killing him. The officers are: Winson Seto, Antonio Santos, Charles August, Nicholas Cuevas and Scott Phillips, according to the Bay City News.

A spokesman for the police department also reiterated the department's statement that video of the incident shows Woods "extending his right arm as he moves forward and the officer moves backwards," according to the Bay City News, despite the release of new video by Woods family attorney John Burris that appears to contradict this claim.

  • 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.'"
