Police are continuing to investigate a shooting that closed the Aquarium MBTA stop for several hours Sunday night.

No one was injured Sunday when shots were fired at the Blue Line stop at around 9:50 p.m., the MBTA Transit Police say in a report on the department’s website.

“A preliminary investigation suggest[s] there was an unknown disturbance onboard an inbound Blue Line train involving several juvenile males,” police write. “The disturbance continued onto the platform at Aquarium station. At some point as the juvenile males were proceeding out of the station at least two shots were fired from an unknown calibre handgun.”

The MBTA announced around 10:15 p.m. that Blue Line trains would bypass the station while an investigation was underway. It later said in a tweet that the stop would re-open for the morning commute.

In a statement, TPD Superintendent Richard Sullivan said “all available resources will be deployed to identify, locate and apprehend the person/s responsible for such reckless and criminal conduct.”
