On Sunday morning a little before 10:30 a.m. in the Bayview district, Levit Chavez Jr., 22, allegedly stabbed to death his father, Levit Chavez Sr., 49. According to SF Weekly, Chavez Jr. "is being held in connection with his father's stabbing death and the near-fatal stabbing of the elder Chavez' longtime girlfriend at 47 Ceres Street near Third Street." Jr. was arrested, it seems, after hiding out at a nearby Walgreens. While the reason for this weekend's grim patricide is not yet know, suggest that it "appear[s] to have stemmed from 'some type of argument.'" Intriguing, indeed. Anyway, this brings San Francisco's murder rate to 18 for 2009.
