EL CERRITO, Calif. (AP) — A 17-year-old boy who was shot by police at a San Francisco Bay Area commuter train station is expected to survive, authorities said Sunday.
The teen, whose name has not been released, remained in the hospital Sunday morning and has not been booked on charges following a domestic disturbance Saturday at the train station, according to Bay Area Rapid Transit officials.
He was armed with a handgun, which police recovered, BART officials said in a news release Sunday.
BART police officers were called to the El Cerrito del Norte station about 2 p.m. Saturday to investigate a report of an argument between the teen and a young woman aboard a train, BART Police Chief Ed Alvarez said.
Callers reported the argument to police and said he appeared to have a gun, Alvarez said Saturday. Officers confronted the teen, who ran off the train and onto the tracks, where he “produced” the gun.
Police did not say Sunday how many officers fired or how many times he was shot. No one else was injured.
The train station was closed for about eight hours.
