A Los Angeles Metro employee was fatally stabbed at a downtown rail station, a transit official said Sunday.
The attack occurred at 10:46 p.m. Friday at the 7th Street/Metro Center subway station, Metro spokesperson Rick Jager said.
Paramedics rushed the employee, who had critical injuries to his chest, to Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 11:23 p.m., said Jager, adding that the Los Angeles Police Department has ruled the assault a homicide.
The LAPD could not be reached for immediate comment on Sunday.
Jager would not disclose the employee’s position at Metro, but added that there were no other victims in connection with the fatal assault.
“We’re still having trouble notifying next of kin,” he said.
