One dead, one injured in shooting at Bay Fair BART

One person is dead and another wounded after a shooting at the Bay Fair BART station in San Leandro Saturday afternoon.

Quick thinking by a local cab driver may have helped BART police quickly take a man into custody for the shootings. What we know now is a 40-year-old man is dead and a woman is hospitalized.

A man who did not want to be identified told ABC7 News he was standing nearby when gunshots rang out. He described the fear he felt when the shooting happened near him, "I tried to run myself. I thought somebody was mad and had a machine gun or something because I heard tak, tak, tak tak. I tried to run myself and hide because everybody was running."

... BART police say they have one man in custody. A nearby cab driver told us he followed three men after hearing the shots. He was suspicious because they were the only ones walking away from the scene while others ran away in panic. He also did not want to appear on camera.

2. Holy crap.

So close to home. Sad, sad, sad. I wonder what the circumstances are. Gang related? Another rogue madman? Happy gun appreciation day, people.

3. Locking

The hosts have had a discussion about local stories involving "guns taken to schools".
After some internet searching, it seems that this is happening all over the US.
Our decision is that if it is in a local paper then it is a local story and not news of national interest.
If we had posts about every incidence, LBN would be inundated with these types of articles.

Please feel free to post in the California group or GD as long as gun stories are allowed.

Thanks for understanding.

4. Locking?

Wow- Bad policy. I'd say all of these shootings happening on gun appreciation day/weekend are of national interest.

How much is too much?

Happy gun appreciation weekend.
