    Stabbing Suspect Has Died After Being Shot by Off-Duty Police Officer at Union Station Metro
    Police block off one entrance to Union Station Metro after an off-duty officer shot a stabbing suspect. The Metro station was briefly closed, but reopened quickly Saturday evening.

    A stabbing suspect shot by an off-duty Baltimore County police officer on the Metro escalators at Union Station last month died Tuesday, police said.

    Rashad Bugg-Bey, 25, of Northeast D.C., was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon in the stabbing of a woman in Union Station just before his encounter with the police officer, police said.

    The suspect was riding up an escalator at about 8:25 p.m. Nov. 14, still holding the knife allegedly used in the stabbing, and headed toward the Amtrak level, while the officer was headed down another escalator. The officer tried to subdue the man, then shot him multiple times in the upper body, police said.

    The stabbing victim was related to the suspect and left Union Station after she was injured. She called police and was taken by ambulance to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
