Police are investigating what they're calling a "large fight" that closed the Union Station Metro platform this afternoon.
A Metro spokesman says the fight broke out on the platform around 1:15 p.m. today, involving as many as 20 people.
One teenager was taken to the hospital in serious condition, but his injuries that were not thought to be life threatening. The spokesman says police believe the teen was the victim of a robbery.
There were preliminary reports of gun shots on the platform. Metro now says that was not the case. The station was closed for about half an hour, but has since reopened and trains are operating normally.
