A man was stabbed to death Saturday on a train on the Metro Red Line, the Washington D.C. police said.
They said the man was stabbed in the NoMa-Gallaudet Station, which is in the 200 block of Florida Avenue NE, around 12:50 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
Police said the victim was a 24-year-old man from Northeast Washington, however his identity has not been released yet.
Officers found the fatally stabbed man on the platform of the station and are unsure of where the exact attack took place.
In a statement late Saturday, police said nothing about a motive in the brutal attack. However earlier in the day they said the stabbing may have occurred during a robbery, the Washington Post reported.
The Fourth of July stabbing prompted Metro to close the station for a part of the day and began shuttling passengers by bus to other stations, creating transportation nightmares for those trying to reach the Mall for holiday celebrations.
The Red Line was single-tracking trains and skipping the stop at NoMa-Gallaudet. The station reopened Saturday evening. It is located about a half mile northeast to Union Station.
Washington D.C. police say they are looking for a black man with dark brown complexion, according to a report by the Washington Post. The man was wearing a blue shirt with writing or a logo on the left side, black shoes, with blue jeans and red bandana. The man was also said to be wearing glasses and carrying a black and red backpack, according to the report.
