One person is dead and three others were injured after a gunman opened fire on a local metro train in the US state of Georgia on Thursday.

A suspect was arrested when the train stopped at the next station in Atlanta.

Initial reports suggested the shooter appeared to fire on passengers at random.

Gunfire erupted aboard a Blue Line train at about 4:30 p.m local time, shortly after it left a station on the city’s west side, Joseph Dorsey, deputy chief of the MARTA police, said at a news conference.

MARTA is the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority.

“As the train was in motion, the suspect fired several shots toward the victims,” Dorsey said.
