WNBC (Los Angeles) is in live coverage as police prepare to storm a Pacific Surfliner in Chatsworth on belief a deranged pax has a gun-no word on hostages, though it seems other pax and crew evacuated. As this is also a Metrolink route, needless to say a travel nightmare is on.

I arrived Chatsworth on Metrolink (my daily commute) a couple hours before this incident. Wound up listening to some of it on the scanner when I got home. Several Metrolink trains were annuled and I believe the Coast Starlight #11 was affected as well. Was over a little after 2AM with LA Sheriff's Special Enforcement Bureau using tear gas.
