GARY | Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District police are asking for the public's help in identifying two suspects who allegedly fired a handgun at glass partitions at the Gary Metro station Monday.
At 2 p.m. Monday, security cameras captured images of two men wearing winter clothing firing a handgun at glass partitions on the train platform. Another window inside the Adam Benjamin Metro Center was damaged by gunfire as well.
Police believe a BB or pellet gun was used in the shootings, which led to $2,000 in damages.
"No passengers were present during the crime and nobody was injured," NICTD Transit Police Chief Bob Byrd said in a statement issued Friday.
The transportation center at 200 W. 4th Ave. is owned by the City of Gary and serves as the headquarters for the Gary Public Transportation Corporation. Gary buses, South Shore trains and several interstate bus companies use the facility.
Police are asking anyone with information about the suspects to contact NICTD transit police at (219) 398-6000. Police said all calls are kept confidential.
