A gunman in Los Angeles California opened fire on passengers in a Greyhound bus at 1:20 a.m. this morning on February 3. Six people were hospitalized from the tragic event. One victim was flown to a hospital where she was later pronounced dead. Authorities have yet to release her identity.
According to witnesses, the gunman was screaming and cursing before the slaughter began. The bus driver managed to save the rest of the passengers by talking the shooter off the bus on interstate 5, just outside of L.A. Passengers on the bus rushed to tend to the wounded until ambulances arrived.
As of right now, the suspect is in L.A.P.D. custody. Investigators are inspecting the scene of the crime at a gas station where the bus driver pulled over after the shooting occurred. California Highway Patrol Officer Brian Pennings states that the shooter “abandoned his gun in the bus.”
The police officers captured the suspect on the side of the interstate soon after the ordeal took place at 1:34 a.m.
The shooters weapon of choice was a black handgun. The suspect is still waiting for questioning. The motive for the shooting at this time is unknown. Witnesses of the crime are being questioned until further notice.
