Two suspects believed to be the gunmen are described as men in their mid 20s, one of them about 5 feet tall with a slight build and wearing a gray sweatshirt, a dark wool cap with a short bill and blue jeans. The second suspect was described as having collar-length black curly hair and he was wearing a ball cap.

Four young men were stopped in a gold Buick on John Daly Boulevard near the entrance to the BART station at about 7:10 p.m. when two suspects exited from a vehicle behind them, police said.

Both suspects approached the Buick and started firing into the vehicle, according to police. The suspects were last seen entering northbound Interstate Highway 280 from John Daly Boulevard in a silver or gray newer hatchback, possibly a Honda.

A 21-year-old man in the Buick was shot multiple times and pronounced dead on arrival at a local hospital, police said. Two of the other three people in the car suffered gunshot wounds that were not considered to be life threatening, according to police.

Police are investigating a motive for the shootings.

"The victims do not appear to be involved in gangs or drugs," said Lt. Jay Morena, who added that road rage does not appear to be a factor.

Morena said that given the time and location of the shooting, there were likely hundreds of commuters in the area and police are urging witnesses to come forward.

Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call Daly City police Detective Gregg Oglesby at (650) 991-8172 or Detective Frank Mangan at (650) 991-8147.

The shooting marked the first homicide in the city this year.
