A shooting at a Willowbrook Metro station leaves four people injured, three in critical condition Friday night, according to the LA County Sheriffs Department.
Four people were shot at the Willowbrook/Rosa Parks C Line Los Angeles Metro Rail station.
Authorities received reports of multiple shots fired with victims around 7:41 p.m.
They said there was a close range gunfire attack at the station inside a train.
Andrew Maynard, a rider heading home from LAX, witnessed the incident and says it started with an unintelligible argument between several young men.
“He shot three times! Then more arguing and pushing and shoving. He shot three more times and a man ran towards me to get away. They shot him in the leg! He collapsed next to me! I was crouched down trying to hide,” Maynard said.
Train services were suspended between Crenshaw and Willowbrook station, inconveniencing countless others riders, plus at least two dozen in the train car where the shooting occurred.
Another rider is grateful she was on the blue and not the C Line Friday night.
“I was not there when it happened, thank God! That’s why I think I’m blessed. Why I’m still alive!”
The man who witnessed the violence says he’s not surprised the gunmen haven’t been found.
“The one shooter looked like he was gonna come after this guy! Train stopped. Doors opened. They took off running.”
Three of the victims are in critical condition and the fourth is in non-critical condition.
The genders of the victims were not immediately known.
Police are searching for two suspects, but a description of the suspects was not immediately given.
An investigation is underway.
