BART officials report that systemwide delays caused by police activity in downtown Oakland this afternoon cleared up shortly before 3:30 p.m.
Service was delayed after police responded to a shooting in the area of 11th Street and Broadway at 3:09 p.m., according to Oakland police Officer Kevin McDonald.
Few details were immediately available but it appears one victim was shot, possibly in the leg, McDonald said.
The incident affected BART service in part because there was a report of a person armed with a gun entering the 12th Street/City Center BART Station following the shooting, according to BART police Lt. Michael Hayes.
Trains were held while the station and trains were searched, but no suspects were located, Hayes said.
Around the same time, a strong-arm robbery also occurred at the West Oakland BART station, according to Hayes.
A train was held at Lake Merritt station in connection with that incident while police searched for the suspect, but the suspect was gone, he said.
BART service cleared around 3:22 p.m., according to BART spokeswoman Luna Salaver.
