    Red Line trains were halted on the South Side early Monday after a person was fatally struck by a train.

    A person was fatally struck by a Red Line train early Monday on the South Side.

    The male was struck by the train shortly before 4 a.m. near 71st Street, according to Chicago Police.

    He was dead at the scene, but additional information, including his age, was not immediately available, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

    Trains were halted in the area, but as of 4:35 a.m. were operating between Howard and 63rd, and 79th and 95th, according to the CTA.

    Customers were told to consider using the No. 29 State bus as an alternative until trains were moving again between between 63rd and 79th streets, the CTA said. Shuttle buses were made available to provide connecting service between the stations.
