SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)
San Francisco police have released images and surveillance footage of a suspect wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old man in the city’s Ingleside Heights neighborhood Monday night.
The victim was reportedly shot at about 9:50 p.m. as he was exiting an eastbound Muni light-rail vehicle near the corner of Randolph and Bright streets, police said.
The identity of the victim has not been released, police said.
The motive for the shooting remains under investigation and police said the suspect and victim do not appear to have known each other. The attack appears to have been random and unprovoked, police said.
The suspect fled the scene following the shooting and is believed to be armed and dangerous. He remains at large, according to police.
Police said the suspect is described as an Asian male between 20 and 30 years of age, with a stocky build. He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap with a purple brim and a logo on the front.
At the time of the homicide, he was also wearing a white fleece hooded jacket with gray lining, blue jeans and black running shoes with white trim, police said.
A Muni surveillance camera captured the suspect’s image prior to the shooting and police are releasing the images to the public.
Anyone with information about the suspect or the shooting is urged to contact police at (415) 734-3114 or may do so anonymously at (415) 575-4444. Citizens also have the option of texting a tip to TIP411 and typing SFPD in the subject line.
