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.
