Police have arrested a 29-year-old alleged gang member in connection with a shooting on a Muni bus earlier this month.

Anthony Ray, a San Francisco resident, was taken into custody Tuesday by officers at a home in the 1500 block of Valle Vista in Vallejo, and later booked into San Francisco County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder, aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated assault upon the passenger of a streetcar and carrying a loaded firearm.

The shooting happened just before 2 p.m. Feb. 9 aboard a Muni light rail vehicle near the intersection of Third and 22nd streets.

Responding officers found a 22-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. He was taken to a nearby hospital and is recovering.

Police later learned that a witness had grabbed the suspect’s gun following the shooting, and fought the suspect for control of the gu. The witness ended up on the ground outside the Muni train, and the suspect ran away.

The weapon and surveillance video were recovered from the scene, which helped identify the suspect.
