Officials confirmed on Monday that a suspect is in custody after a shooting on a Dallas Area Rapid Transit train that killed one person and injured two others.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit assistant vice president Gordon Shattles said in a statement that the shooting happened at about 4:30 p.m. CT on Sunday when two people got into an argument aboard a northbound Green Line train near Hatcher Station.  Two people, including a bystander, were shot and rushed to Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas where one of those victims died, according to the transit system (known as DART). It is unclear whether the person who died was involved in the altercation. A third person was treated at the scene for non-life-threatening injuries.

In a statement, Gordon Shattles, DART assistant vice president, said a suspect was detained:  “DART Police have apprehended the suspect and recovered the weapon used in the incident.”  The suspect, whose name was not immediately disclosed, has been charged with one count of murder and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Hatcher Station is about 30 miles south of the Allen Premium Outlets, just north of Dallas, where eight people were fatally shot Saturday afternoon before police killed the gunman.
