WASHINGTON — A woman was injured in a shooting inside the L'Enfant Plaza Metro station Thursday afternoon.
Just after 4 p.m., the Metro Transit Police (MTPD) were called to the L'Enfant Plaza station for reports of shots fired. They responded to the upper-level Green/Yellow line platform. Once on scene, they found one person with minor injuries, and she declined to be taken to a hospital for further treatment.
"At this time it is unclear whether the individual was grazed by the gunshot or how the injury was sustained," MTPD said.
According to WMATA, the woman was an innocent bystander who was hit after an altercation between the suspect and a third person.
Demarvzia Caston, 40, was arrested and has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
Due to the investigation, Green and Yellow Line trains were not stopping at L'Enfant Plaza and riders were being directed to use Metrobus from Archives to L’Enfant Plaza. Normal service has since resumed as of 8:30 p.m.
