1 Dead, 1 Injured in San Francisco Muni Train Shooting – NBC Bay Area

One person was killed and another was hurt in a shooting on a Muni train in San Francisco Wednesday morning, police said.

The shooting happened at about 10 am between the Forest Hill and Castro stations, San Francisco Police Officer Kathryn Winters said. One victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The other victim was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect fled from the train at the Castro station and remains at large.

Winters said the shooting appeared to be an isolated incident.

“I also want to assure the community that this incident does not appear to have any connection to Pride events or does not appear to target the LGBTQ community,” Winters said. “We really want to make sure that our community members and visitors who are in town for Pride week understand that.”

It wasn’t immediately known if the suspect and victims knew each other. Police are investigating any potential connections and are also looking into what led up to the shooting.

Anyone who witnessed the shooting is asked to contact San Francisco police.

Muni subway service between the West Portal and Castro stations has been stopped, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency said.
