Light Rail service into downtown Minneapolis was temporarily halted Saturday evening following a shooting that left one person hurt. 

The shooting occurred in a tobacco shop on the 2200 block of E. Lake Street at around 6:00 p.m., according to Minneapolis Scanner. 

Police scanner activity indicates the suspect was then seen running toward the light rail, and was subsequently spotted by officers on a train, prompting Metro Transit to stop it so police could search it. 

The incident impacted Blue Line service into downtown; even after the situation was resolved, transit officials were warning riders to expect delays as they got things back in order:

KARE 11 reports that a suspect was taken into custody, while the shooting victim suffered "a non-life threatening gunshot wound" and was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center. 

There's no word yet on what led to the shooting, and no names have been released.
