Metro says a teenage boy is dead after being struck by a train approaching the Columbia Heights station this afternoon.

Preliminary information suggests the boy purposely placed himself in the path of the train, according to a Metro spokeswoman. She says the boy was struck by a six-car yellow-line train headed downtown around 2 p.m.

The Columbia Heights station was closed for about an hour during the rescue, but has since reopened. Metro service on the green and yellow lines returned to normal around 4:15.

The spokesman says Metro is still investigating the incident.
