Anthony Ray of San Francisco Arrested for Alleged Shooting on Light Rail

Police on Tuesday arrested a man who allegedly shot and wounded a passenger on a light-rail vehicle in San Francisco last week. At 1:56 p.m. on Feb. 9, officers responded to a report of a shooting on board a San Francisco Municipal Railway LRV near the intersection of Third and 22nd streets. According to police, officers arrived at the scene and found a 22-year-old San Francisco man suffering from a gunshot wound to his head.

He was taken to a hospital, where he is recovering from his injury. Investigators determined that after the shooting, a witness grabbed the suspect’s gun and a physical fight ensued. The suspect lost control of the gun and then fled the scene. A surveillance camera recorded the altercation and helped officers identify the suspect as 29-year-old Anthony Ray of San Francisco. Ray had previous contacts with police and is known to be associated with San Francisco gangs, police said.

A $2 million warrant was secured for Ray’s arrest. On Tuesday, officers arrested Ray at a residence in the 1500 block of Valle Vista Avenue in Vallejo. He was booked into jail on suspicion of attempted murder, aggravated assault, aggravated assault with a firearm, and carrying a loaded firearm.
