San Francisco:

Police say one person was killed and another injured after a shooting at a Muni train in San Francisco on Wednesday morning.

The San Francisco Police Department responded to the shooting report at the Muni Forest Hill station and found that the train had departed toward the Castro station.

Officers discovered the two victims at Castro station. One was pronounced dead at the scene and the other was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, a police spokesman said.

The gunman ran from the train at Castro station and was still at large, San Francisco police said.

The shooting was not random, the suspected gunman and one of the victims were in dispute before the gunshot, according to a report from the San Francisco Chronicle.

“It’s another reminder that as long as our country is inundated with guns, there can be firing anywhere, anytime,” Senator Scott Wiener said in a statement. “California has the strictest gun safety laws in the nation, and we continue to strengthen them. But we need strong Congressional action to really improve the security of our community.”
