  Original Published: 10/10/2013 Police investigating a deadly shooting on a commuter train say other passengers busy with their mobile phones ignored the gunman, even though he was openly displaying his weapon. This was the scene in San Francisco on September 23. That's when police say an armed man on a Muni Train pulled out a gun and pointed it three or four times. But investigators say no one noticed, apparently because they were all using smartphones. They did look up when the gunman fired, killing a San Francisco State University student. Police say the victim, 20-year-old Justin Valdez, was apparently targeted at random. The 30-year-old shooter was arrested the next day.
