Police responded to reports of multiple shots fired at the Red Line platform at the Metro Center station shortly before 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, DC Metro Transit Police said.

Ashan Benedict, executive assistant chief of police for the Metropolitan Police Department, said at a late night briefing that two individuals, including the officer, were involved in an altercation that resulted in them both going over a railing on the platform away from the spurs , and shots are fired. Troy Bullock, 28, of DC, was killed in the incident, DC police said in an update Thursday.
