BART service through San Francisco was briefly disrupted this morning as police searched for a suspect at the Embarcadero station, a BART spokeswoman said.

Trains were stopped at the station around 8:30 a.m. as officers investigated reports of a person with a weapon, spokeswoman Luna Salaver said.

No weapon was found and the scene was cleared shortly before 8:40 a.m., she said.

The incident initially caused delays of up to 20 minutes but as of 9 a.m. the delays were down to five to 10 minutes, a BART employee said.
