A shooting at the Bayfair BART station in San Leandro this afternoon has left at least one person dead, a BART spokeswoman said. One or more suspects shot and killed at least one victim in the station’s bus loading zone some time after noon, causing BART police to close the station just before 1 p.m., BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said.

Police remained at the scene of the shooting conducting an investigation and were waiting for Alameda County coroner’s personnel as of 2:30 p.m., Trost said. No further details about victims or suspects in the shooting were immediately available. BART passengers are being transported to connecting stations via bus, and those needing to pick up their cars from the Bayfair parking lot may also take a connecting bus from another nearby station.
