A man died Sunday morning after authorities believe he jumped in front of a Metro subway train as it arrived at a stop in Pikesville.

Terry Owens, a spokesman for the Maryland Transit Administration, said the incident happened shortly before 11 a.m. at the Milford Mill station.

Based on observations from the train operator and onboard video cameras, Owens said, MTA police investigators "have reason to believe this was a case of suicide."

The MTA closed the station for several hours during the investigation, until about 5 p.m., and subway trains bypassed the Milford Mills station en route to other stops.

The MTA used shuttle buses to transport passengers who had intended to use the station to neighboring stations, Owens said. Police have not released the man's name.
