A shooting at a MARTA station forced the company to suspend rail service Sunday. 

The shooting occurred on the blue line at the Kensington station in DeKalb County.

The unidentified victim was taken to the hospital with an injury to his leg, according to a spokesperson with the DeKalb County Fire Department. Officials say the victim managed to get the gun away from the suspect. When the train stopped at Kensington, the suspect ran off.

Police are still trying to determine a motive for the attack.

Rail service was suspended at the Kensington station, with delays at other stations. Rail service has since resumed.
