After Shooting Two People on a San Francisco Train, One of Them Died, the Gunman Is Still at Large

Police said a man was wanted in connection with the shooting of two persons, one of whom died, aboard a crowded Muni commuter train in San Francisco on Wednesday.

According to Kathryn Winters, a spokeswoman for the San Francisco Police Department, the incident happened at 10 a.m. as the light-rail train was traveling between stations.

In response to a complaint of a gunshot, police were first dispatched to the city’s Forest Hill Muni station, according to Winters, but the train had already left. At the crowded Castro Street Station, when the officers caught up to the train, they found the two victims, according to Winters.

She claimed that as soon as the train stopped and the station doors opened, the shooter and the passengers fled.

One victim, a guy, was declared dead at the site, according to Winters. With non-life-threatening wounds, a second person was transported to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center.

The incident took place in the famed Castro District of San Francisco, which is likely to be crowded with revelers this weekend celebrating LGBTQ pride, just before this Sunday’s Pride Parade. Winters stated that preliminary information indicated the incident was not related to this weekend’s events or targeted at the LGBTQ population in the area.

Myrna Melgar, a supervisor in San Francisco, told ABC affiliate KGO-TV that police had told her the shooting happened following a disagreement the shooter had with the person who died.

We are aware that the gunshot took place during a contentious verbal altercation, Melgar stated.

Whether the shooter and the dead victim knew one another was not immediately known. According to her, the second person who suffered injuries was an innocent bystander.

According to Winters, murder investigators are obtaining surveillance footage from the train, as well as the Forest Hill and Castro stations, in the hopes that they may find a video of the shooting that would enable them to identify the shooter.

The culprit was described only in broad strokes by police as a guy in dark clothing and a hooded hoodie.


Melgar urged any riders who saw the incident while on the train to call the police right away.
