BART police ID Fremont man killed at Bay Fair station shooting

Story by Katie Nelson:

SAN LEANDRO — Police have identified the man shot and killed Saturday in the crossfire of two warring gangs at the Bay Fair BART station.

Kenneth Lee Seets, 50, died of gunshot wounds sustained in a shooting between two groups that met up at the station, got into an argument, then opened fire, according to BART police.

Seets, who last lived in Fremont, was one of two people hit during the shooting. A younger woman who has not been identified was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and released late Saturday.

Seets, who is believed to be an innocent bystander, died at the scene.

Police do have a suspect they are actively searching for in the shooting, but they are declining to release any details on the person at this time.

Anyone with information on the case should call the BART Police Department’s investigation’s section at 510-464-7040 or the confidential hotline at (510) 464-7011.
