One dead, three wounded in shooting on board US train

One person has been killed and three wounded after a gunman opened fire on board a train in the United States.

According to local media, the attacker appeared to fire randomly at people on the MATRA train in Atlanta, not long after it departed a station on the city’s west side.

It’s believed all the victims were in their 30’s.


“As the train was in motion, the suspect fired several shots toward the victims,” Joseph Dorsey, deputy chief of the MARTA police, said.

MARTA is the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority.
