    Eric Kine - NBC 5 News

    A teenager was shot near a DART station near Fair Park Monday, just hours after the conclusion of Dallas' Martin Luther King Jr. Parade.

    NBC 5 Reporter Eric King, who was nearby covering the parade, reported hearing as many as five gunshots at about 3 p.m. and then witnessing a number of police cars head toward the train station.

    Police later confirmed a teenage boy was shot in the arm and that a person of interest had been taken into custody.

    A section of the train platform was cordoned off while Dallas police investigated the shooting. The station reopened just after 5 p.m. Monday.

    A motive for the shooting has not been disclosed.

    Officers said the shooting is the second within an hour in the same area, but would not elaborate on first shooting.

    About 200,000 people were expected to attend the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade, which ended at Fair Park a couple of hours before the shooting.
