San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit's contract with its two largest unions appears to be facing uncertainty late Friday Nov. 15, 2013 as the agency called for a return to the bargaining table, just weeks after the agreement settled a dispute that has already caused two strikes.

One person was injured Saturday in a shooting aboard a BART train in Oakland, transit officials said.

The incident was reported just before 1 p.m. on a San Francisco-bound train as it reached the West Oakland station, Bay Area Rapid Transit officials said.

A male patient was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

The BART train on which the shooting occurred was removed from service to a maintenance yard for the investigation.

BART officials said no suspect was in custody.

The incident was the second reported on a Bay Area public transit line this week.

Wednesday morning, one person was killed and another injured in a shooting aboard a Muni Metro train in the Castro neighborhood of San Francisco.

The shooting reportedly arose out of an argument, city officials said.
