The man involved has since been taken into custody. According to D.C. police, he was armed with a knife, and they believe he had been experiencing a mental health crisis.
Power at the station was turned off, and Red Line service between Farragut North and NoMa-Gallaudet was suspended while officers responded, with shuttle buses being provided in the interim.
Residual delays continued near the station after service was restored.
