USA: 1 dead, 5 injured in firing on a bus in California
The California Highway Patrol responded by saying a gunman assassinated one passenger and critically injured five others on a Greyhound bus that traveled from Los Angeles to the San Francisco Bay Area early Monday morning.
The firing took place at 1:20 a.m. Deep in the hills between LA and the San Joaquin Valley, as the bus was on the Grapevine portion of Interstate 5.
The driver of the bus eventually managed and get the gunman off the bus and leaving him on the shoulder of the highway, where he had been captured without injury, reporters tells Sgt. Brian Pennings.
The car carried onto the next exit after leaving the shooter down, then turned into something like a gas station’s parking garage.
Pennings said that the number of people aboard the bus was “significant.” “We are extremely thankful the bus driver has acted swiftly,” said Pennings. Witnesses were interviewed along with strong suspicion.
The perpetrator or the perpetrators have not been immediately identified by authorities. Pennings said all of the five injured were flown to a field.
The province lies in Tejon Pass, increasing to a depth of more than 4,100 feet (1,250 meters).
