BART Police this afternoon released the name of the previously unidentified victim in Saturday's shooting aboard a train car as it approached the West Oakland BART station. At the same time, BART officials released two additional photos of the suspected shooter.
The victim, Carlos Misael Funez-Romero, was a resident of Antioch. His family was notified yesterday.
An email from BART officials noted that the new photos provide a better view of the suspect, and may help in the public's attempt to identify him.
"Original reports were that the suspect had a shaved head but these photos show he may have a close cut haircut and possibly a light mustache," the BART communication reads.
As to where the new photos came from — questions of whether the train's security cameras were real, working, or decoys have as of yet gone unanswered — BART spokesperson Alicia Trost wouldn't say.
“We cannot provide details on how and where these pictures were obtained at this time as this is an on-gong and active investigation,” said Trost. "Investigators continue to analyze multiple sources of surveillance tapes."
At this time there is no known motive for the shooting, and police have not ruled out it being completely random. Anyone who has any idea as to the identity of the suspected shooter can call an anonymous tips line at 510-464-7011.
