11:01 pm
restricted area of the potomac avenue metro station. we're told that man was on the tracks about 400 feet down the tunnel off the metro platform basically toward the next station which is stadium armory. when the metro transit officer responded, she confronted the man and eventually shot him. it's those critical moments from when she responded to when she shot him that are still being investigated. it's unclear if the man was armed. that, too, is being investigated, also why he was down there and what he was doing in an area that is clearly unauthorized metro stresses. >> we don't know what he was doing in the tunnel, why he was in the tunnel between stadium armory and potomac avenue. all of that will be under investigation. >> reporter: obviously this is very early in the investigation. meanwhile potomac avenue station is closed tonight. trains are bypassing. if you are riding the blue, orange or silver lines, expect delays the rest of the night. live in the district i'm mola

lenghi for wusa9. >> i know we don't know yet whether or not that suspect was armed, but any word what he might have done to provoke the fear that got the officer to shoot him? >> reporter: all we know is that he was in an area like we said that metro says clearly there was no accident. you don't accidentally stumble into the area that he was. that certainly at this point is the the reason why he was shot, but it's those -- not the reason yes of shot, but -- why he was shot, but it's those critical moments that are being investigated. >> because this is a homicide, the metropolitan police department will take over the investigation from the metro transit cops. you can get the latest breaking news developments on this story on our wusa9 app. demonstrators say they'll gather tonight in ferguson, missouri, to protest police brutality. two police officers were shot and seriously injured during a similar protest last night. craig boswell shows us the effort tonight to search for the shooter. >> reporter: demonstrators
11:03 pm
gathered for a prayer vigil and marched to ferguson police headquarters for a second night of protestersful investigators are still looking for the -- protesters. investigators are still looking for the gunman that opened fire after a demonstration yesterday. one was shot in the face, the other in the shoulder, both treated and released. >> this was not someone trying to bring healing to ferguson. this was a damn punk. >> reporter: the search for the shooter focused on this house in ferguson just blocks from the shooting. s.w.a.t. team members broke through the roof. several people were questioned, but no one was arrested. the flare-up violence here came hours after ferguson's police chief resigned. last week the justice department found that tom jackson's police force had a practice of racial bias against african americans. community activists say they can't understand violence in the wake of progress. >> action is being taken. now all of a sudden we want to

11:06 pm
