Hours after the mass shooting in San Jose on Wednesday, Bagga Singh waited at a Red Cross center with other family members to learn the fate of his cousin, 30, a train operator and father of two small children.

Singh, a resident of Union City, said a location tracking device showed his cousin’s phone was still in one of the buildings where the shooting occurred. He and other family members have called it several times, and it just rings, he said.

He said his cousin was one of several relatives, immigrants from India, who work for the transit agency, but the cousin was the only one on duty Wednesday morning.

“We’re just waiting for news,” Singh said. No one, not even the hospitals, can provide any information, he said. He said the family hoped his cousin might be with law enforcement being interviewed.
