OAKLAND (KRON) — As of 12:06 p.m. Monday, there are delays on BART throughout the stations due to a suspect who was on the tracks between the Lake Merritt and Fruitvale stations. BART has shut down third rail power.

Two passengers got into a fight and while BART police was notified, one of the suspects got off the train and ran into a tunnel. Trains are being held at Lake Merritt and some are even being turned south of the station.

The suspect is now in custody, according to BART.

Normal service will resume when it’s safe to do so.
