OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Police have released photos from surveillance video of a man suspected in the killing of a passenger aboard a Bay Area Rapid Transit train.

BART police on Wednesday made public images of a bald man seen wearing a dark green jacket, blue jeans and beige work boots.

Police say the images were captured on video in Oakland and at the Pittsburg/Bay Point station, where he entered the train system before the Saturday evening slaying.

They say that when the San Francisco-bound train stopped at the West Oakland station, the suspect pulled a gun and fatally shot a passenger seating near a door.

The suspect fled the train as some passengers frantically tried to save the shooting victim, who hasn't been identified.
