BART trains are running through the El Cerrito del Notre station once again following an officer involved shooting Saturday afternoon. Two officers fired shots at a teen armed with a gun. The teen, who has not been identified, is expected to survive, the transit agency said Sunday morning. Police say they got a call from a passenger on a train who was witnessing a domestic disturbance, and that the 17-year-old involved appeared to have a gun tucked in his waistband. As a train bound for Warm Springs pulled into El Cerrito's del Norte station, police say officers responding to the emergency call, confronted the suspect with their firearms at the ready based on the report of a potential weapon. "It was like pop pop pop pop, maybe 8 or 9 in a row. All of a sudden a bunch of people start running out. And I think oh it's gotta be gun shots everybody running out like that," said Dan Holzman.
