August 19, 2011 |  8:45 pm

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies were searching late Friday for the person who stabbed someone on the Red Line subway in Hollywood, officials said.

It's unclear what the condition of the victim is, or exactly where the stabbing occurred.

Metro trains are continuing to run but are skipping the Hollywood/Vine station, said Sheriff's Lt. John Hocking.

The stabbing took place about 7:30 p.m., he said.

[Updated, 9:18 p.m.: The victim, a man, was pronounced dead at the scene, Hocking said. The suspect is still at large.]
