A man who was shot and killed near the Richmond BART station on Monday night has been identified by the Contra Costa County coroner's bureau as 30-year-old Faheim Smith.
The shooting was reported at about 10:10 p.m., when a BART police officer notified Richmond police that he heard gunfire and that someone told him a man had been shot, Richmond police Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said.
Police responded and found Smith, a Richmond resident, down with a gunshot wound to his torso near 19th Street and Nevin Avenue, just east of the BART station, Abetkov said.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Abetkov said the shooter may have fled on a bicycle. Investigators were expected to review BART surveillance footage to see if the shooting was captured on video, she said.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
