A confrontation between three passengers on a T-Third Muni train yesterday afternoon ended in one of the passengers being shot, and another being injured.
According to police, the incident occurred in broad daylight, around 1:56pm, onboard the train near 3rd and 22nd streets in Dogpatch. The suspect, a 25-year-old man, had been fighting with both of the male victims, 22 and 21, when he opened fire on the older man, wounding him. When the younger man intervened, the suspect did not shoot him, but struck and injured him.
The suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction, and no arrest was made. Both of the injured passengers were transported to the hospital; according to SFGate, they are in fair condition.
While investigating the shooting, SFPD shut down 3rd Street between 20th and 22nd streets for a little over an hour, snarling T-Third service:

A representative said increased plainclothes and uniformed officers had been placed on buses and trains in the area in the immediate aftermath of the incident.
