14-year-old boy fatally shot


Police are searching for a suspect who fatally shot a 14-year-old boy Monday, a police lieutenant said.

Officers responded at 9:22 a.m. to a shooting picked up by the ShotSpotter gunshot detection system in the 3300 block of Ohio Avenue, Richmond police Lt. Andre Hill said.

Responding officers found a teen suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his upper torso. Medical responders were unable to stabilize the teen and he was pronounced dead at the scene, Hill said.

The victim was apparently found on the Richmond Greenway trail.

Witnesses reported seeing a male suspect running from the scene, Hill said.

Officers are searching for the suspect on that pedestrian and bicyclist path, which is near BART tracks. A K-9 unit from BART police has also been called to the scene to assist in the search.

BART officials announced on Twitter shortly before 11 a.m. that trains were experiencing delays of up to 10 minutes between the El Cerrito del Norte and Richmond stations because of the police activity.
