Sources say a black vehicle was seen leaving the scene of the shooting in Compton and Slim 400 was seen laying in a pool of blood. The 31-year-old was reported to be stable but still critical in the early hours of Saturday morning.

No fires or injuries have been reported, CN said.

Railway crews responded to the incident, and are working with municipal officials in Sarnia and Michigan, CN said.

James Freed, Port Huron city manager, stated "My office is actively monitoring the train derailment within the worldwide train tunnel". It was the first full-size subaqueous tunnel built in North America.
