ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - A person was struck and killed after jumping in front of a train on the northbound track at Dunwoody MARTA Station, police say.

The power to the rail is still de-energized and bus transportation is being provided between North Springs and Medical Center Stations.

MARTAConnect is also available for customers to use Uber or Lyft to travel through the area and they are offering up to $8 off rides to and from affected areas.

Thursday morning, reports came in around 7:10 a.m. of a person trapped under a train.

Police say the person jumped in front of a moving train which appears to be an attempted suicide.

The person’s identity has not been confirmed.

DeKalb AMR, DeKalb Fire and the MARTA Police Department are currently on the scene as this investigation is still ongoing.
