Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – A teen was shot in the leg while at the Delmar MetroLink station Sunday night.

The incident happened around 6:15 p.m. It is unclear what happened before the shooting, but police say the teen is conscious and breathing. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The suspect involved in the shooting is described as a black male, around 5’ 11”, with a dark complexion, short haircut, and wearing a black T-shirt.

MetroLink issued a statement saying: "One instance is too many.  The safety and security of our customers is our top priority.  We are working with the St. Louis police department on both cases." The second case cites a man who allegedly molested a teen while at the Union Station MetroLink stop on Sunday.

The investigation is ongoing.
