At least three individuals fled as soon as the train’s door opened, according to Florence Austin, 70, who was waiting for the Metro A Line.
Austin claimed that Richardson began yelling for someone to call the police at that point.
She noticed the man bleeding out on the ground as she drew nearer to the train car.
The man was given CPR at the A Line platform before being placed on a trolley and taken to a nearby hospital, where police said he passed away as a result of his wounds.
The Long Beach Police Department didn’t offer any other information regarding the inquiry.
According to a tweet from Metro, there may be a 15-minute delay for A Line passengers due to police activities.
