Police responded to the scene and found three adult male victims who were all transported to the hospital, where one died, he said. Detectives are investigating what led to the shooting.
Initial reports indicate there was some kind of dispute or disturbance on the street level that continued into the station.
The suspect left on foot.
Investigators don’t believe the shooting was random, Jamieson said.
The relationship between the three victims is unclear.
