- "I know how to use this thing!"
- ―The commuter (from Predator 2)
An unnamed commuter was the target of harassment from a gang and their leader aboard the Los Angeles metro in 1997. When the attempted robbery erupted into a fierce standoff with the other passengers, the train was attacked by a lone Yautja and the commuter perished during the subsequent shootout.
Robbery and shootout
The commuter was on his way home from work when the subway gang confronted him in an attempt to extort money from him through fear. The commuter pretended to cooperate, only to draw a revolver from his briefcase. The gang responded by drawing their own weapons and snatching away the commuter's pistol, but when several other passengers on the train also armed themselves, and detectives Jerry Lambert and Leona Cantrell joined the confrontation, a stand-off ensued. Before Jerry and Leona could calm the situation down, the City Hunter burst onto the train and began to slaughter anyone who resisted.
While the commuter, having had his gun taken away by the gang members, was spared by the Predator, he then found himself trapped due to the darkness of the train carriage and chaos surrounding him. As he desperately scrambled for a way out, he was killed by a stray bullet fired by Jerry as the latter attempted to shoot the City Hunter.
The commuter carried a snub-nosed Smith & Wesson Model 66 in his briefcase for self-defense.
