Authorities reported one Drug Enforcement Administration agent while two other officers were injured in a shooting on an Amtrak train that was stopped in Tucson, Arizona on Monday 4th of October 2021.
It happened that the officers boarded the train Monday morning to perform a routine check for illegal guns, money, and drugs. Then they came across two people on the second level of the double-decker Amtrak car, according to Tucson Police.
One person was detained, while the other opened fire. This impact made a DEA agent dead and left another DEA agent in critical condition.
The police also added that a Tucson police officer who was on the platform heard the gunfire and ran onto the train, at which point he was shot. Fortunately, that officer is in stable condition.
After the act, the suspected gunman barricaded himself in a lower-level bathroom, where he later died. Police are still investigating this issue as the death of the gunman is still a mystery.
There were no reports of injuries to the 137 passengers or 11 crew members, Amtrak said.
The train was on the road from Los Angeles to New Orleans and arrived in Tucson at 7:40 a.m. local time, Amtrak said.
