BART police shoot, wound armed man at El Cerrito del Norte Station

  BART police shoot, wound armed man at El Cerrito del Norte Station BART police officers shot and seriously wounded a man who drew a handgun while they were investigating a report of a domestic disturbance Saturday afternoon aboard a train at El Cerrito del Norte BART Station, agency officials said. BART Police Chief Ed Alvarez detailed the moments leading up to the shooting in an afternoon news conference in the station parking lot. At about 2 p.m., BART officers responded to a report of an argument between a male and female passenger aboard a train at the station in the Warm Springs direction, Alvarez said. As the two officers were arriving to the train, Alvarez said, a witness told dispatchers she saw a handgun in the man’s waistband.

BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said Friday morning that because the man is on a psychiatric hold, he has not yet been booked and his name and other identifying information have not been released.

Earlier Thursday afternoon, BART police released surveillance photos of the suspect.

The suspect was seen boarding a Daly City-bound train at the Coliseum BART station and beginning to “casually” speak with a female passenger already aboard the train, BART officials said Thursday.

“The victim then boarded the train at Fruitvale and began talking to both the male and female,” BART officials said of the surveillance video, which they did not release. “The suspect then punched the male in the face and the two got into a fight.”
