Police Monday released surveillance images of a man suspected of shooting a woman to death aboard a Metro Red Line train at the Hollywood/Vine Station over the weekend.

Officers were dispatched about 5:10 a.m. Sunday to the station in response to a call of a shooting, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

When they arrived, people were performing CPR on the woman, who was suffering from gunshot wounds. Paramedics rushed her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

“Witnesses saw an agitated suspect pacing on the train. He had a verbal argument with the victim, who was seated nearby,” police said. “The train stopped at (the) Hollywood/Vine (station). The suspect shot the victim and exited the train onto Hollywood Boulevard in an unknown direction.”

The suspect was described as a man in his mid-20s with black hair pulled into a ponytail or bun. He was last seen wearing a black baseball hat, blue jacket, blue shorts, white shoes and a surgical mask.

LAPD West Bureau homicide investigators urged anyone with information regarding the homicide or the suspect to call them at 213-382-9470.
