BART Police Release New Photos Of West Oakland Shooting Suspect

OAKLAND (CBS SF) -- BART Police on Friday afternoon released two additional photos of the suspect in the fatal shooting Saturday on a train stopped at the West Oakland station.

The two new photos provide a clearer image of the suspect.


"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," police said.

Authorities were asking for the public's assistance in identifying the suspect.

"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 BART spokesperson Alicia Trost.  "Investigators continue to analyze multiple sources of surveillance tapes."

Earlier Friday, the Alameda County Coroner identified the man who was fatally shot on on Saturday as Antioch resident Carlos Misael Funez-Romero.

The coroner's report indicated that Funez-Romero was 19 years old and died of  multiple bullet wounds at 8:02 p.m. last Saturday evening. Officers who responded to the shooting provided first aid to the victim, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities had previously noted they were having some difficulty identifying the passenger.

At a Thursday news conference, a police investigator said the victim had a Honduran identification card that turned out to be fake. While the photo on the ID card resembles the victim, the thumb print on the card does not match the victim's thumb print.

BART Police released an initial set of surveillance photos of the suspect in the shooting Thursday afternoon.

The photos show the suspect as he was exiting the West Oakland station shortly after the shooting, which occurred on a San Francisco International Airport-bound train as it was approaching the West Oakland station at about 7:45 p.m. Saturday.

"We're seeking the public's help in identifying him. Somebody out there knows this individual," Rainey said.

He said the shooting was "a pretty brazen, random act" and police want to catch the culprit.
