Stabbing on Shaw station platform

Noon update: Metro now says the stabbing was on the platform itself, not the street, with two people fighting on the platform and one stabbed on the hand. A minute later, Metro followed up to say that "There was no incident": The person told police that he had stabbed himself, and he did not want any charges pressed against anyone. Police did not recover a weapon and dropped it at that.

Original post: A man was transported to an area hospital by ambulance after a fight near 7th Street left him bleeding on the mezzanine of the Shaw-Howard University Metro station on the Green Line. The station is still open.

"There was a fight on the street, and a guy ran inside and told the station manager he was stabbed. Station manager called the ambulance," said Metro spokesperson Taryn McNeil. She did not know how serious his injuries were.

A stabbing on the platform and Metro isn't single tracking through the area for the next six hours? This is too sensible. Did they have a change in management in the last day?

The person was INJURED, not SICK. If he had thrown up after being stabbed, THEN they would shut everything down.....
