I just wanted to provide a quick update on an incident that happened this afternoon involving a Metro bus.
About 1:30 p.m., a Line 117 bus that was stopped to load a passenger was hit by two bullets near the intersection of Century Boulevard and Normandie Avenue in Los Angeles. The bullets struck the bus’ windshield and door panel — there were no injuries.
The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department says that the bus was not the target but was hit twice by errant shots. About 40 people were aboard the bus at the time.
A male suspect was seen running from the scene with a handgun. The Sheriff’s Department is investigating the incident.
