A shooting that occurred on the BART path, also known as the Ohlone Greenway, near the El Cerrito Library Wednesday afternoon has left many readers concerned about traveling between Stockton and Lincoln avenues.
Two teen-aged males, believed to be high school students, were shot by two other other teenage males shortly before 2 p.m. today, Wednesday, according to El Cerrito police.
Both El Cerrito High School and Fairmont Elementary School were placed on temporary lockdown. Stockton Avenue also was closed for several hours at the BART path and didn't reopen until around 7 p.m. according to a reader.
The two suspects involved in the shooting escaped, going east on Stockton, police said. They were described as teenaged African-American males in dark clothing.
In light of the incident, readers have left the following responses:
"Ah yes, the oh-so-lonely greenway. Avoid at all costs," one reader commented.
"EC is new east Oakland," another said.
