A man who was killed when he jumped in front of a Red Line train at a downtown Los Angeles Metro station was identified by a coroner's lieutenant Saturday as 24-year-old Joseph Pablico of South Pasadena, authorities said.
He jumped in front of an arriving train at the Civic Center Station about 1:35 p.m. Thursday and was declared dead at the scene, said Metro spokesman Paul Gonzales.
He was struck on the eastbound track, said Ramon Montenegro of the sheriff's Transit Services Bureau.
There were immediate "major delays" on the Red and Purple lines that were expected to last through the afternoon rush, according to Metro.
The death was being investigated as suicide, Gonzales said.
