A shooting at the West Lake MARTA station in Atlanta left one dead and three hospitalized. Authorities have apprehended a suspect, and the mass transit station has shut down.


The four shooting victims were initially reported in stable condition at Grady Memorial Hospital, WXIA and other local news outlets reported. Police have since confirmed one of those four died. The shooting occurred at about 4:30pm local time.


The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority announced on Twitter that a bus bridge had been established to accommodate travelers once the West Lake station closed around 5:00pm.


The shooting occurred inside a train heading east toward West Lake station, WGCL reported.


A fifth person was hospitalized for an ankle injury, not from a gunshot wound.
