EL CERRITO — A BART police officer shot and wounded a person at the El Cerrito del Norte station Saturday afternoon.

BART first reported the station had been closed for “police activity” at 2:15 p.m.

Just after 2:30 p.m. the transit agency said the person who had been shot was alive, but provided no more information about what happened in the shooting, adding that more details would be released later.

Trains are turning back at North Berkeley station. Northbound passengers will need to take AC Transit’s line 52 and transfer to line 72 to reach the El Cerrito Plaza and Richmond stations.

Check back for updates.
