SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A 77-year-old man was killed in an attack at a San Francisco 7-Eleven on Tuesday morning, San Francisco Police Department Investigations Deputy Chief Raj Vaswani said on Twitter.

Initial reports from SFPD had misstated the man’s age. However, a statement the department provided on Wednesday clarified the victim’s age as 77 and identified the store where he was attacked as a 7-Eleven on Bayshore Boulevard. The victim was also identified as Richard Owens.

The incident happened just before 6:30 a.m. at a store in the area of Bayshore Boulevard and Arleta Avenue. Vaswani said the suspect began to attack people at the store, and officers located several victims upon arrival.

One of those victims, the 77-year-old man, had life-threatening injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Two others were taken to the hospital.

A 7-Eleven employee was another one of those attacked. His daughter told KRON4 that he is recovering well, but it will be a long road until he is healed.

SFPD officers were directed to the suspect as he was fleeing and took him into custody. He was later identified as Charles Short, a 32-year-old San Francisco resident, SFPD said. He was booked into jail on charges of homicide, kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, mayhem, robbery, aggravated assault, preventing a victim from calling 911 and resisting arrest.

Supervisor Shamann Walton has been working with Captain Lew of the Ingleside station on the investigation, according to SFPD. They believe the attack was random.

“It is heartbreaking to see this type of senseless violence on the seniors in our community,” said Supervisor Walton. “I am committed to working with our community, city departments, and law enforcement to prevent violent incidents like this from happening to our community and to our seniors. We are the only district office with an extensive Public Safety Plan in three languages to coordinate public safety approaches and we continue to work on the outcomes in the plan, which include getting to zero homicides and violent crimes.”
