A man was stabbed near the 63rd Street Red Line Station in Englewood early Monday morning. The victim later died from his injuries.

Update 2: The person killed has been identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as 15-year-old Darin McNair of the 13000 block of S. Drexel Avenue in the Pullman neighborhood.

Update: Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan said video footage reviewed by investigators suggest the man was with a group who threatened or tried to rob someone else on the train. Video showed the man holding a gun before the individual targeted by the group used a knife to stab him, Deenihan told reporters during a press conference.

CHICAGO — A man has died after being stabbed during an altercation on a Red Line train near the 63rd Street Station in the Englewood neighborhood this morning, authorities said.

The stabbing occurred shortly after 3:00 a.m. Monday on a Chicago Transit Authority Red Line train on the city's South Side near the 200 block of West 63rd Street, police said.

The victim was able to run away to approximately the 6300 block of South Yale Avenue. He suffered stab wounds to his chest and later was pronounced dead at a hospital.

No arrests have been made.

Four people were stabbed and injured Friday in an attack on another Red Line train up north in Lincoln Park.[1]

Six robbery suspects followed a 42-year-old man onto a Red Line train at about 2 a.m. Friday, then demanded his belongings and attacked him with a knife and a broken glass bottle, police said last week.

The man pulled out his own knife and fought back but suffered stab wounds. Three of the suspects also suffered stab wounds, police said.

The other three were arrested.
