CHICAGO, Illinois- Two Chicago police officers have been killed after being hit by a train Monday evening.

Two Chicago police officers may not have seen or heard the commuter train that fatally struck them because they were focused on another train coming from the opposite direction, a department spokesman said Tuesday.

In a departmentwide memo, Johnson said the officers were "killed in the line of duty while responding for a call of service on the railroad tracks".

Metra said the train was Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District train that runs on Metra tracks.

The officers, 31-year-old Conrad Gary and 36-year-old Eduardo Marmolejo, were stationed in the 5th District, an area that has been hit with multiple tragedies and fatalities this year.

The Chicago Police Department's chief communications officer, Anthony Guglielmi, confirmed on Twitter that two officers "were struck by a passing train" while investigating shots fired, but did not confirm the officers' deaths.

An individual was taken into custody and a weapon was recovered. "Train 205 will take the place of Train 203, making all its scheduled stops".

The officers were struck as they investigated a report of gunshots on the city's far South Side.
