SF police release photo of ‘person of interest’ in fatal shooting on Muni train

One person was killed and another injured Wednesday morning following a shooting inside a Muni train between the system’s Forest Hill and Castro stations, District Seven Supervisor Myrna Melgar said on Twitter.

Melgar, citing information she received from the San Francisco Police Department, said the shooter ran out of the train at the Castro Station and was still at large, but stressed that police were not handling the incident as an active shooter situation.

“We have too many guns out there,” Melgar said in a follow-up tweet. “Too, too many.”

About 9:56 am, San Francisco police responded to a report of a shooting at the Muni Forest Hill Station, but on scene discovered that the train had already left and was headed toward the Castro Station, according to police spokesperson Allison Maxie.

Officers discovered the two victims at the Castro station. A 70-year-old man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and a second victim, a 27-year-old man, died at the scene despite life-saving measures by San Francisco firefighters, police said .
