Police: Man shot by guard at Union Station dies

WASHINGTON -- Police say a man who stabbed a woman and then was shot by a security guard at Washington's Union Station has died.

D. C. Police Department spokesman Officer Sean Hickman announced the man's death Friday evening. The man has not been identified.

Police say a private security guard associated with the Securities and Exchange Commission saw the man stabbing the woman and chased him. The SEC is located across the street from Union Station.

Authorities say the man turned and pointed the knife at the security guard, lunging at him, according to police. The guard fired one shot, and the man was wounded.

Both the man and woman were taken to hospitals. The woman's condition is not known.
