The shooting occurred in a large live-work loft in an industrial neighborhood north of downtown. Kalberg was booked for suspicion of murder and is being held in lieu of $1 million bail. He is the former publisher of the Los Angeles punk chronicle No Mag and author of the novel "Sub-Hollywood" under the name Bruce Caen. (info from The San Francisco Chronicle & MetalJazz.com)
