One person was struck and killed by a train and another was injured after a confrontation that began on a subway platform at East 125th Street in Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon, the police said.

"Two men fighting on the platform of the Lexington Avenue line at East 125th Street rolled off the platform into the path" of an uptown train, Paul J. Browne, the Police Department's chief spokesman, said in an e-mail.

The Fire Department said one man was killed and another was taken to Harlem Hospital Center in serious but stable condition. The police said a man was in custody, though it was not immediately clear if it was the injured man.
