The conductor was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

An Amtrak train conductor was shot at the Metra station in Naperville, a town about 50 km west of Chicago, during rush hour on Tuesday afternoon, and the suspect has been in custody.

"We know that the conductor stepped out onto the platform and the suspected reached out a window and fired at him", said Cmdr. The gunman was held by passengers until police arrived on scene and he was arrested.

The incident took place about 4:45 p.m., Cammiso said.

While they did not witness or hear the shooting, they became quickly aware that something had happened and could see the conductor laying on the platform. When officers arrived, the man was being restrained by other passengers on the train.

Train traffic in both directions was shut down as was Fourth Avenue, where the station is located, according to a city of Naperville alert to residents.

"Local commuter Metra trains will be off-loading passengers on the north side of the train station at 5th Ave and Ellsworth", Linda LaCloche, communications manager for Naperville, said in an email.

"Without knowing the intent or motive of the suspect, I think it is very important and could have saved some lives by passengers taking that person and holding him for police", he said.
