Update 1:12 p.m.: Lt. Paul Kwon tells us that someone called police reporting that there was a person on the train who claimed to have a bomb. BART police arrived and evacuated the trains as well as the entire Hayward station. The station was closed for more than 40 minutes while police searched the entire premise. They were unable to find a bomb or the person who claimed to have a bomb, Kwon says. 

Trains started moving again a few minutes ago. 

Original Story 12:45 p.m.: Hayward BART station has been closed down for now due to "police activity."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
