An investigation is underway after a woman was shot along the METRORail in southeast Houston on Wednesday night.

Houston and METRO police departments responded to 5400 Griggs Road at the Palm Center Transit Station. The woman appeared to have been getting off the train and shooter may have been on a bike, according to investigators.

Broken glass could be seen where the conductor sits. Police said that’s damage left from the shooting.

At some point, both the woman and the shooter were on the train together, according to police.

“It’s unknown at this time if there’s a motive, if it’s a robbery, or if the suspect or the complainant knew one another,” Josh Windham with Houston Police Department’s Major Assaults Unit said.

The injured woman was taken to a hospital after being shot in the arm. Initial reports from police said she was in non-life-threatening condition, but in an update to Eyewitness News, we learned the woman is 27 years old and is in critical condition.

No arrests have been made. Police describe the suspect to be wearing all black and a red backpack with a white X on it. It is unclear if the suspect is a man or woman.

The station is temporarily shut down while police investigate.
