San Francisco police rushed to Castro station but they did not find the shooter. They did find two victims. One was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The other dead inside the train. Police have only released a very vague description of the shooter, telling us he was wearing dark clothes in a hooded jacket, but they’re reviewing video and images from Muni cameras at their stations and aboard the train. A Muni spokesperson says this is the first time someone was shot and killed aboard one of their trains for passengers. It’s a shock.

It’s not just whoever it was who was shot or the companion of whoever it was, who was shot, but it’s the people who were there who heard the sound and saw it happen. And I mean, the trauma of that is incredible.
