WASHINGTON (AP) — District of Columbia police are identifying the suspect who was fatally shot by an officer at Washington's Union Station after an apparent domestic dispute.
Police identified the deceased suspect Sunday as 57-year-old William Thomas Wilson Jr. of southeast Washington. Wilson was shot by a security officer Friday at Union Station. Police said he had stabbed a woman before he was chased and fatally shot.
The violence at the train station frightened commuters Friday who were commemorating the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.
Police said the security officer who saw the man stab a woman was a private security guard associated with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Police said the suspect turned and pointed the knife at the security guard and lunged at him.
