A Contra Costa County man linked to the Muni Metro train shooting was arrested Thursday night. The incident killed a man and injured another. 

Arrest warrants were served at a home on the 1000 block of Power Avenue in Pittsburg before 8 p.m. The suspect was taken into custody with the assistance of the Pittsburg Police Department and the SFPD Tactical Team. 

The suspect was identified as 26-year-old Javon Green and was booked on charges of homicide, carrying a concealed firearm and using a firearm in the commission of a felony. 

Green allegedly shot two people on a train between Forest Hill and Castro stations on Wednesday. 

The incident killed 27-year-old Nesta Bowen and injured a 70-year-old man. 

The police believe a heated argument caused the shooting and that there was a prior motive between parties. 

Authorities also confirmed that the shooting is not connected to any Pride festivities and is an isolated case. 

“I just really want to assure, again, that our LGBTQ community members and those who are visiting our city from around the world for San Francisco Pride, that this incident does not appear to be related to Pride or targeting our LGBTQ community,” SFPD spokesperson Kathryn Winters said Wednesday.

Green is being held without bail and a court date has not been announced, according to jail records.
