One person was killed and another injured Wednesday morning after a shooting that took place inside a Muni train between the system’s Forest Hill and Castro stations, District 7 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 Castro station and was still at large, but stressed that police did not handle the incident as an active shooting situation.

“We have too many weapons out there,” Melgar said in a follow-up tweet. “For, for many.”

Around. At 9:56 a.m., San Francisco police responded to a report of a shooting at Muni Forest Hill station, but discovered on the spot that the train had already left and was heading toward Castro station, according to police spokesman Allison Maxie.

Officers spotted the two victims at Castro station. One was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and police and firefighters provided emergency assistance to the other. The second victim was pronounced dead at the scene, Maxie said.
