CAMP SPRINGS, Md. — *Editor's Note: WUSA9 received an update on the victims' ages after recording the above video.

Three people were shot, including two juveniles, Sunday afternoon at the Branch Avenue Metro bus bay and a juvenile is now in custody, according to a WMATA official.

The shooting took place around 5:15 p.m. WMATA said that the bus loop was closed during the investigation but, there was no impact on Metrorail service.

An investigation into the incident revealed that four people, a man and three other juvenile boys got off of a train together at Branch Avenue Station Sunday evening, WMATA said. Then moments later, the individuals entered a nearby parking lot where some sort of fight happened and led to an exchange of gunfire, officials said. 

Three of the four individuals were shot during the incident and taken to an area hospital. One of the shooting victims, identified as a juvenile, suffered life-threatening injuries. The other two victims, 18-year-old Na’im Claude Blair and a 17-year-old boy had non-life-threatening injuries, WMATA said. 

Blair faces multiple charges, including attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, two counts of first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and possession of a handgun.

The 17-year-old boy also faces multiple charges, including attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, two counts of first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and possession of a handgun.
