Amtrak conductor shot at Naperville station; Suspect in custody

A Wisconsin man reportedly opened fire in a Chicago-area train station Tuesday, shooting and injuring an Amtrak conductor. "Some passengers assisted the victim, and some passengers secured the suspect and held him for police". He had been shot in the torso and was taken to Edward Hospital in Naperville, where he was conscious and alert.

The conductor suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, a statement from Amtrak said.

Police also say a handgun was recovered and that there is no additional threat to public safety. The Amtrak train was eastbound for Chicago when it stopped at the Naperville station. They found the subject being restrained by other passengers on the train.

"We know that the conductor stepped out onto the platform and the suspected reached out a window and fired at him", said Cmdr. "The suspect in the shooting was being held down by passengers" when the police arrived.


Metra BNSF trains were back on the move after being slowed for the incident. Passenger pick-up was moved to the north side as well.

The Amtrak train, called the Southwest Chief, runs from Los Angeles to Chicago and was carrying 235 passengers at the time.

Police urge anyone who has information about the incident to contact the Naperville Police Department at 630-420-6666 or Naperville Crime Stoppers at 630-420-6006.
