Lafayette police detained a man in the BART parking lot off Oak Hill Rd. Thursday, reportedly finding a handgun on him at the time.
This incident, which occurred at approximately 11:20 a.m., is still very fresh and NEWS24/680 is asking additional questions of authorities. It is not known if the encounter was sparked by an earlier incident in town with the subject involved in that incident last seen heading in the direction of the BART station.
Area BART lots have been busy lately, with multiple reports of break-ins and thefts at BART parking lots.
An attempted carjacking was reported to BART police by a would-be victim who said he was approached by two suspects in the east lot of Orinda Station Wednesday night.
