Police later said the incident will be referred to a Harris County grand jury.
Both Houston police and METRO police were called to the Central Station at 1150 Rusk Street at 8 p.m. with reports of a stabbing on one of the METRORail trains. When officers arrived, they found a stabbing victim with multiple wounds to his upper body.
The man was taken to a local trauma center, where he was later pronounced dead.
The 60-year-old suspect remained on the scene and was taken into custody without incident, police said.
The preliminary investigation from police is that two men got into a fight when one pulled out a knife and stabbed the other on the train, police said.
After consulting with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, HPD said it was determined the incident will be referred to a grand jury for review.
