Muni bus shooting injures one

One person was grazed in a shooting aboard a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus Tuesday night, but the bus was not damaged nor the driver hurt, police and Muni officials said Wednesday.

The incident started about 10 p.m., when four males got into a scuffle in the back of a 54-Felton bus in the Bayview district. A pushing and punching match escalated into shooting, San Francisco police spokesman Sgt. Steve Mannina said.

The shooting victim and a friend were on the bus when two suspects got on and walked back to them, Mannina said. It was unclear what the animosity between the groups stemmed from, but at some point one of the suspects, described only as a black male, punched the victim’s friend.

The shooter, described only as a Samoan male, then pushed the shooting victim, who punched him in the face, knocking him backward, Mannina said.

“That’s when the suspect pulled out a gun and shot once,” Mannina said. The suspect used a handgun and shot at close range, but only grazed the victim, who was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Mannina said.

The two suspects got off the bus in the 100 block of Kiska Road, just a block from the Hunter’s Point Naval Reservation, Mannina said.

Muni spokeswoman Maggie Lynch said Wednesday that the incident was reported at 10:06 p.m. and tied up the bus line until 10:41 p.m. She said the driver was not hurt and the bus was not damaged during the melee.
