According to Eastbaytimes:
Shortly after 9:35 p.m. Sunday, authorities received word of a possible stabbing with two victims on a San Francisco-bound platform. Officers responded and found two victims, one of whom died soon after, BART spokesman Jim Allison said.
KTVU is reporting the women are sisters.
The station was closed overnight while investigators processed the scene, which was either on the platform or on a train, Allison said. The station reopened at 4 a.m. Monday.
Oakland firefighters were sent to the scene and Oakland police and California Highway Patrol officers and Alameda County Sheriff’s Office deputies also responded to the call, a BART police watch commander said.
AC Transit is providing mutual aid for riders stranded by the closure on its 51A route from 19th Street and Broadway, and its 18 route from Martin Luther King Jr. Way at Shattuck Avenue to MacArthur.
Allison said BART police were looking for a white male in his twenties or thirties with a heavy-set build and short hair who fled the station immediately after and was not found. Surveillance footage from cameras on the platform and mezzanine are expected to yield improved descriptions Monday.
