Police activity near Caltrain’s 22nd Street station in San Francisco has shut down Caltrain service this evening. Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said San Francisco police are working to apprehend an armed man on an overpass above the station. She did not yet have further details but said no trains are passing through the area. Service is halted in both directions, and Caltrain is advising riders to seek alternate modes of transportation.
Caltrain is making arrangements for some trains to carry riders to the Millbrae station, where they can take BART. Caltrain tickets are being honored on BART this evening. A passenger on a northbound train that is stopped in the South San Francisco area said an announcement was made on his train that the incident is a hostage situation, but Dunn said she doesn’t think that is the case.
