Two people were shot, including one fatally, when a gunman opened fire on a Muni train in San Francisco Wednesday morning. 

The suspect fled the train at Castro station around 9:54 a.m. and is still on the run, though Supervisor Myrna Melgar said it is not an active shooter situation. 

One of the victims was pronounced dead at the scene. The second wounded victim was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, San Francisco Police Department Commander Raj Vaswani tweeted. 

A heavy law enforcement presence could be seen outside the Castro station investigating the shooting.
