A pedestrian was killed when he was struck by a light rail train Tuesday evening in San Jose, according to a Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority spokeswoman.

At 5:47 p.m., the male pedestrian was struck by a northbound light rail train near the intersection of North First and Rosemary streets, VTA spokeswoman Brandi Childress said.

The train that struck the pedestrian was shut down and about 100 passengers were removed and transferred onto another train.
