abc7 news. we have breaking news out of austin, texas this morning. one suspect is in custody and police are looking for two others. police say the violence happened in the city's entertainment district around 2:00 a.m. local time when a suspect started shooting into a crowd. that was in downtown austin. the suspect is still on the run. the second shooting occurred in a parking garage when a man fired off shots during an aggravated assault. people nearby disarmed him and held him until police arrived. the assault victim has been hospitalized. also in texas this morning, a full team of federal investigators is at the scene of the worst hot-air balloon crash in u.s. history. it happened yesterday near lockhart texas, which is about
9:05 am
30 miles outside austin. 16 people were killed when the balloon hit a power line, caught fire and fell to the ground. powerlines are an occupational hazard. >> you are trying to land the basket or land the balloon near a road, and oftentimes it will require you to either skip over or land next to high-tension powerlines. >> close friends tell our abc affiliate in austin that the experienced pilot was among those killed. >> hayward police arrested a man in a hit-and-run crash around 8:00 last night. it happened last night around industrial boulevard and sleepy hollow. one person was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries. the chp is still sorting things out and hasn't told us how the accident happened or if there is more than the one injury. hayward police have arrested a man accused in a hit-and-run crash while driving drunk.
9:06 am
it happened around 8:00 last night at industrial boulevard and sleepy hollow. police say the driver of a blue pickup truck was racing another car when the truck slammed into a mercedes, seriously injuring the driver. three people in the truck ran away. a witness who saw the crash and then went to help the victim said he could not believe it when he saw the driver run away. >> you just damaged somebody's life. you caused harm to them and you just don't want to help out? and you don't want to take responsibility for what you have done? >> police later found the driver of the truck hiding inside of the other car he was racing service is back to normal this morning after a fire on the track closed down the walnut creek bart station. it happened just before 3:00 yesterday afternoon. the fire ran about 50 feet along a fiberglass cover on the third rail. smoke could be seen for miles.
9:07 am
firefighters took about 30 minutes to put it out. they think a power pickup paddle is to blame. those paddles move along the third rail and send power to the train. if one of those paddles was stuck in an up position or flipped into an up position and made contact with something other than the third rail, theres a lot of energy there, which is definitely enough to set something on fire >> by 4:30 trains were being single-tracked through the station. full-service resumed at 7:00 last night. this morning bart officials are also looking into an arrest made by some of its officers in san francisco. cell phone video of the incident at the embarcadero station has gone viral. and some witnesses say the officers used excessive force. abc7 news reporter cornell barnard has the details.

9:09 am
police. >> the young man looks like he was hit on the ground and subdued and handcuffed. i don't see any reason for that. that looked to be very unnecessary, very improper. >> bart said in a statement the suspect was uncooperative with officers and physically resisted the detention. the man was arrested for resisting arrest and battery on a police officer. an investigation is now underway. in san francisco, cornell barnard, abc7 news. >> happening now, thedth annual san francisco marathon is over. just a few runners have yet to cross the finish line. here's a live picture from the golden gate bridge camera. you might be able to see one or two stragglers as they make their way through the fog. organizers say some 27,000 runners participated in the race. they sent out this video of the start in the dark at 5:30 this morning. the run went through the city,
