Lee, whose residence is unknown, was killed at about 3:30 p.m. after he reportedly laid down on the tracks at the 24th Street BART station Sunday. The station was closed for more than two hours and delays were systemwide while BART officials investigated.
The cause of Lee's death has not yet been determined; however, witnesses told police that they saw Lee get onto the tracks and lay down before the train reached the station.
A passenger, who claimed to be on the train when the incident happened, told media outlets that the operator got onto the loudspeaker and, sounding shaken, announced an emergency evacuation.
