Atlanta television station WGCL quoted witnesses as saying that the shooter, a man also in his 30s, appeared to shoot randomly at passengers.

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) did not immediately respond to a request for comment but said in a statement that a suspect had been detained and an investigation was ongoing, adding that emergency responders are at the station on Atlanta’s west side.

Cellphone video shot by a bystander and carried by Atlanta’s Fox TV affiliate on its Facebook page showed a female and another person lying on the floor of a rail car as passengers bent over them.

MARTA said the station had been temporarily closed.
