San Francisco police are still looking for the person who gunned down a 19-year-old man on Saturday evening. Meanwhile, police say the teen, who had been suffering life-threatening injuries, will survive.

On Saturday, at about 7:15 p.m., the cops were called out to the 800 block of Market Street on reports of a shooting. When they arrived, they found the victim laying at the entrance of the BART station with multiple gunshot wounds, says Officer Gordon Shyy.

Witnesses reportedly scattered to the underground portion of the station, attempting to hop the next train. Others fled to the nearby Westfield Mall. Police quickly closed down the BART station and riders were evacuated, according to press reports. Some of those near the scene described the incident via Twitter: And more tweets came in: The suspect also fled the scene. He is described as a black man in his teens or 20s and last seen wearing a white t-shirt. Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to call the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 553-8090.
