The fatal shooting involved a murder suspect from California who was shot after opening fire on Amtrak police at Union Station around 5 p.m., according to Chicago Police.

The man saw uniformed officers waiting for him on the platform and took off running, officials said. One of the Amtrak officers returned fire and struck the man and he was pronounced dead at a hospital. An Amtrak employee suffered minor injuries, and an officer also was taken to the hospital for evaluation, officials said.

He was shot in the arm and was taken to Swedish Covenant Hospital in good condition, police said.
