A MARTA spokesperson said the shooting happened on a train while it was traveling eastbound.

The West Lake station was closed just after 5 police investigated the shooting.

Police have detained a suspect, Burton said, but further details were not immediately released. I look back and see a guy's back and see his outstretched arm.

Peterson said a woman and her child were in front of him when they got to the door connecting cars and ran through, but the next door was jammed.

"It was a regular day until we heard that first gunshot", said Cedric Patterson, who witnessed the shooting.

He said people started moving as the train pulled into the station.

Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority police Chief Wanda Dunham said in a statement Thursday night that Zachariah Hunnicutt was fatally shot and three other passengers were wounded.

Grady Hospital spokeswoman Denise Simpson says all four victims are in stable, noncritical condition.

Dunham says the suspect was captured at the train station and the weapon was recovered.

One person is dead and three others were injured after a gunman opened fire on a local metro train in the U.S. state of Georgia on Thursday.
