A man is dead after he was stabbed at the Potomac Avenue Metro Station in Southeast D.C. on Sunday evening.

He was stabbed several times on the station escalator around 11:45 p.m., D.C. police told WTOP, despite the station having closed for the night.

The man was transported to an area hospital for treatment, where he was later pronounced dead.

Police are searching for three persons of interest, described as two black men in their teens — one seen wearing a red hat, black jacket and blue pants — and a black female, seen wearing a black top and blue jeans.
