Hayward Station reopened after shooting incident

The Hayward BART Station was reopened around 6 p.m. Monday after a midday shooting incident outside the station.

The station had been closed since around 12:30 p.m. while police investigated the shooting that broke out among a group of young males who had been standing outside the station. During that time, trains ran through the station but did not stop and did not allow passengers on or off. Passengers were able to get off at South Hayward Station and take buses to Hayward, and service in other areas of the BART system was not affected.

Police are seeking a person of interest in connection with the shooting, which left a teen male dead and an adult male wounded.  If you witnessed the incident or have information about it, please call BART Police Department at (877) 679-7000.
