HAYWARD -- The Hayward BART Station was closed for over an hour late Saturday as police investigated a shooting that left one man injured near the station's parking lot.

Investigation of the shooting at the station's bus zone, which occurred around 10:14 p.m., continues by BART and Hayward police Sunday.

BART police did a second check of the area early Sunday morning to utilize the daylight, BART police Lt. Randy Gregson said. Detectives continue to look into possible leads, he said.

The station reopened just before midnight, while investigators remained at the scene near the station's bus zone, BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said.

Trost said that a man was shot in the stomach apparently at the station's bus zone. The victim walked into the station after the shooting. He was later transported to Eden Medical Center where he was being treated for non-life-threatening wounds, Trost said.

Hayward police and Alameda County sheriff's deputies are assisting in the investigation.

During the station closure, trains were continuing to travel to their regular destinations, but were not stopping at the Hayward station.
