The West Oakland BART station closed temporarily shortly after 1 p.m. Saturday due to shooting on a Daly City-bound train, officials said. 

BART spokesperson Jim Allison said in a message issued on the agency’s media line that one man was injured in the incident and transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. By 2 p.m., BART reopened the West Oakland station with full service on both tracks between San Francisco and the East Bay on both tracks.

“The incident train has been moved to a maintenance yard for further investigation,” Alison said.

ABC 7 spoke with witnesses who told the TV station that the shooting occurred when two men on the train started arguing.


“The train approached the station,” Ivan Rodriguez told ABC 7. “They got into a physical altercation. That’s when a firearm was produced. Someone was hit in the head with it. The shot rang off. Can’t really tell you what happened after that cause as soon as that happened we hit the floor.”

This is the second shooting in a week on public transit in the San Francisco Bay Area. A 27-year-old man was shot and killed and a 70-year-old man injured on Wednesday morning aboard a San Francisco Muni train traveling between the Forest Hill and Castro stations. The San Francisco Police Department said Friday morning that it arrested a suspect.
