Police shot and critically injured a young man Saturday at a commuter train station in Northern California, forcing the station to be closed for about eight hours, local media reported.

Police Chief Ed Alvarez of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system told a news conference that the young man, who was involved in an argument with a young woman, suffered “life-threatening injuries” during a shooting when police officers saw him produce a hand gun and opened fire.

The KPIX 5 TV quoted Alvarez as saying that the suspect ran out of the train and onto the tracks after encountering the police officers, which prompted the police to chase after him at the El Cerrito del Norte station.

“A gun was produced by the suspect and our officers shot, ultimately recovering a gun,” according to the police chief.

The BART stations between the El Cerrito del Norte and Richmond in East Bay remained closed until late Saturday night. Enditem
