BART police released a sketch of the suspect who shot and killed a woman at the Richmond BART station last month, hoping someone will come forward with information on his whereabouts.

The shooting occurred on March 14 at about 6 p.m. in front of the Transit Office at the Richmond BART station, killing 34-year-old Raymond Harris, of San Pablo.

A witness gave police a description of the suspect, who apparently looks sorta like this guy to your right.

The shooter was described as a 6-foot black man in his early to mid-20's. He had a slender build, medium-to-dark complexion, wearing dark clothing with a possibly a tan shirt underneath. The suspect may have also been wearing a gray baseball cap with "Buffalo Bills" printed on it written in red and blue.

BART police also released surveillance images of a woman who reportedly arrived at the station with the suspect, walked away momentarily right before the shooting occurred, then came back after the victim was shot. The woman fled on foot with the suspect. She is described as a black female, about 5-foot-6 with a slender build, medium-to-dark complexion. She has long hair past her shoulders with bangs, and was seen wearing a gray long-sleeved top, blue jeans. She was also carrying a large red or pink handbag.

"This was a brazen crime, committed during the rush hour commute and we are committed to following up on every lead to solve this case and help keep the community safe," said BART Police Chief Kenton Rainey. "We need the public's help in identifying the suspect and his associate to bring justice to the victim's family and the community."

The public is asked to call BART Police with any information about this shooting at 510-464-7000.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
