Teen Shot on Metro Train; Some Red Line Trains Single-Tracking


A teenager was shot on a Red Line Metro train Sunday afternoon, Metro Transit police say.

Jermaine Brown has been charged with first-degree assault for the shooting. During the affray, which was captured by digital video cameras aboard the railcar, Brown pulled a gun and fired multiple times. Police say Brown unintentionally shot his 14-year-old half-brother during the "affray". One round struck his half-brother and two other bullets struck the rail auto. The investigation determined that the shooting occurred in Maryland, prior to the train crossing into the District of Columbia.

A 14-year-old was shot in the abdomen at about 3 p.m. on a train traveling between Silver Spring and Takoma stations, according to Metro police. He was listed in stable condition Monday morning. He said the victim was conscious before being hospitalized.

A young person is in the healing center after a shooting on a Metro prepare Sunday, as indicated by ABC7's Cheryl Conner.

After the shooting, the three other men involved in the altercation left the train at Takoma and boarded a train going in the opposite direction.

More information forthcoming as we get it.
