LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - A man stabbed another man to death on a commuter train platform in Long Beach early Friday, shutting down the station during the morning commute, authorities said.

Investigators were searching for the attacker following the stabbing shortly after 2 a.m. at the Blue Line’s Wardlow Station, Metro Rail spokeswoman Kim Upton said.

Trains were operating at the time, but it was not known if the men were passengers, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Lisa Jansen said.

No other details were released, including what led to the killing.

The investigation forced a shutdown of the station, and passengers were shuttled around the closure on buses.

The Blue Line runs 22 miles between downtown Long Beach and downtown Los Angeles. Wardlow Station is an open platform with a parking lot near the city’s Wrigley Heights neighborhood.
