Metro Transit police responded to reports of shots fired at or near the Dale Street station in St. Paul on Monday afternoon on the Green Line light rail, transit spokesman Howie Padilla said. Reports of gunshots came in just after 4:30 p.m.
A man was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul with nonlife-threatening injuries as a result of the shooting, Padilla said.
Train service in both directions between Hamline and Western was stopped, and Metro Transit made announcements over the system's public address system and on its Twitter feed to update passengers. Extrabuses on the 16 line were added to accommodate LRT riders.
The Green Line trains were running again in both directions by 7 p.m.
Police were investigating reports of two bursts of what sounded like gunfire as a westbound train approached the station at Dale.
The shooting was a separate incident from a nearby fatal shooting reported near St. Albans Street and Fuller Avenue two hours earlier on Monday, according to St. Paul police.
