San Leandro BART station reopens after shooting

Sunday, July 29, 2012

The San Leandro BART Station has reopened and service fully restored more than two hours after a shooting was reported there, a BART spokesman said.

Police received reports of shots fired in the station's concourse level just before 9:50 p.m. Saturday night, BART spokesman Jim Allison said.

No one was injured in the shooting, and police continue to search for the shooter.

The station was closed at about 10:10 p.m. and passengers were advised to head to nearby stations and board an AC Transit bus to reach the San Leandro Station.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing, and no suspect description was immediately available.
