UPPER DARBY, Pa. -

A SEPTA spokesperson tells FOX 29 a man was shot by police after he lunged at two officers with a knife at the 69th Street terminal in Upper Darby.

According to SEPTA, the incident started during an interaction between the suspect and SEPTA police officers. Investigators tell FOX 29 they believe the suspect may have been trying to commit suicide.

The shooting happened around 8 p.m.

There were no injuries to officers or any nearby passengers.

The suspect was taken to Delaware County Memorial Hospital, where police say he is in stable condition with gunshots to his shoulder and side.

FOX 29's Omari Fleming reports the terminal was packed with commuters at the time of the shooting.

While train service was suspended at the terminal, SEPTA says buses were brought in to take passengers to their next stop.
