The suspect ran from the train and down and exited the station. He is still at large.

Many are calling the attack a hate crime, and even a terrorist attack carried out by a white supremacist.
Oakland native and international superstar Kehlani has even taken to social media to demand justice and call out the media for its coverage of what she considers a “a vicious attack by a RACIST/TERRORIST/WHITE SUPREMACIST,”
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of this senseless attack. We not only hope, but we stand with the people of Oakland who DEMAND that justice be served. CSUITEMUSIC will continue to monitor this story as it unfolds.
