By Peter Granitz

The Cheverly Metro station will open later this afternoon after police finish investigating a death there this morning.

A Prince George's County fire and rescue spokesperson says a pedestrian was struck by a Metro train at approximately 11 a.m. Crews responded to the incident and rescued the man, but he later died at the scene.

Police have not identified the man who, according to Metro was on the track intentionally. Power at the station was shut down and trains are sharing one track through Cheverly.

Passengers should expect major delays on the orange line, but shuttle buses are available between the Deanwood and New Carrollton stations.
