BART Recovers From Delays After Gunman Reports Prove False

Agency police received multiple reports of person with gun at West Oakland station

BART trains were briefly delayed Tuesday night at the West Oakland station after police received a report of a possible gunman at the station, according to BART.

Police allegedly received multiple calls regarding a person with a gun and police immediately responded, BART officials said on Twitter at about 8:20 p.m.

Those reports, however, appeared to be unsubstantiated and police were unable to find anyone with a gun, according to a BART watch commander.

No injuries were reported.

The incident caused a 10-minute delay in the Pittsburg/Bay Point, Dublin/Pleasanton, Richmond and Millbrae directions. The delays have since been resolved and BART is recovering.
