WASHINGTON, D.C. - Transit police in Washington, D.C. fatally shot a man after responding to a call about an "unauthorized person" on the tracks in a subway tunnel.
Metro Transit Police spokesman Mike Tolbert said the shooting happened at the Potomac Avenue station Thursday night. Tolbert said he had no details about the man, what he was doing in the tunnel, or what prompted police to shoot him. He said no officers were injured.
Tolbert said the Transit Police received the call a little before 9 p.m. He said Washington, D.C., police are leading the investigation into the shooting.
The Potomac Avenue station was closed following the shooting. Tolbert said the orange, silver and blue lines that normally stop there were bypassing the station in both directions.
