Police Release Photo Of Suspect In Bay Fair BART Fatal Shooting
SAN LEANDRO (KCBS) — Police in San Leandro continue to look for a man suspected in a fatal shooting at the Bay Fair BART station nearly a month ago.
On January 19th, 50-year-old Kenneth Lee Seets of Fremont was at the station’s bus loading zone when gunfire broke out between several youths, possibly from two rival street gangs. Seets was caught in the crossfire and died at the scene, while a woman suffered minor injuries.
Police said they are looking for 18-year-old Jabrie Bennett and a female companion, 18-year-old Antilea Beal. Two suspects have already been arrested in the shooting.
Bennett is described as a black man who is about 5 feet 6 inches tall with brown eyes, black hair and a slim build, according to police.
BART Deputy Chief Benson Fairow said the shooting was highly unusual.
“This type of serious, violent crime is not something that we experience and the fact that it occurred is terrible,” he said.
Bennett has a warrant out for his arrest and according to police he should be considered armed, dangerous and a threat to the public.
“We need to get this information out so we can get him into custody safely,” Fairow said.
The Alameda County District Attorney is still investigating the shooting and so far there have been no formal charges against the two suspects in custody.
Anyone with information about Bennett’s whereabouts is asked to call 911, their local police department or BART police at (510) 464-7000.
