SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (AP) - Police say Bay Area Rapid Transit trains are recovering from delays after a man entered a station with a fake gun.

The East Bay Times reports (https://bit.ly/1Wibei8 ) that officers had responded Sunday afternoon to a report from a Bay Fair station agent about a man with a gun. BART police Lt.
