LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles authorities say a man found dead in the Metro Red Line subway in Hollywood was apparently hit by a train heading downtown.

City fire spokesman Brian Humphrey says firefighters and paramedics were dispatched to the Sunset/Vermont station shortly before 6 a.m. Sunday.

The victim was dead at the scene.

There were no injuries on the Union Station-bound train. About 40 passengers were safely removed.

Metro says Red Line trains were briefly delayed between North Hollywood and Union Station.

The death is under investigation.
