A man was hospitalized and a toy gun was recovered after police were called for a report of a person with a gun on a Blue Line train on Friday, police said.
Police were called to the Blue Line Addison stop, in the 3600 block of West Addison Street, at 5:08 p.m. because of reports of a man with a gun, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala.
While Zala said he could not confirm whether anyone was arrested or a gun was found, another police officer later said a man had been arrested and taken to St. Mary's Hospital for a health evaluation after the man appeared incoherent and was crying.
Police also recovered a toy gun hidden behind a ladder on the train, police said.
Power was removed on part of the Blue Line's O'Hare branch for about six minutes starting at 5:16 p.m., said CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski.
One train that stopped at the Addison station because of the police activity was delayed for about 14 minutes, Hosinski said.
Service later resumed and was returning to normal, she said.
