The man was unresponsive at the scene, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office could not immediately confirm the fatality.

The CTA temporarily halted all train service between the Kimball and Western Brown Line stations, but normal service had resumed by 2:53 a.m., according to the transit agency. Shuttle buses were available for riders while crews investigated.

Chicago Police are calling the incident a death investigaiton and are trying to determine why the man was on the tracks.

One witness said it appeared the man was pushed onto the tracks but police will not confirm that.

"I saw two guys playing around and then one person pushed the other person to the tracks. That's all I saw," the witness said.

Police say they are speaking to the other person involved.
