Authorities a shooting that took place mid-morning today on a Metro bus in Glassell Park was gang-related, according to KTLA. The victim, a man thought to be in his 40s, was shot inside the bus following an argument with the gunman. At the time of the shooting, the bus was stopped in the 3700 Block of Eagle Rock Boulevard. The victim was shot twice, and wounded, and ultimately "transported to Huntington Memorial in Pasadena where he is listed in stable condition." The gunman was taken into custody after fleeing on foot into the neighborhood; officers pursued the suspect for about 30 minutes.

The shooting was reported to the police by a business owner who witnessed the incident. He believes surveillance cameras may have captured the shooting. Many passengers on board saw the shooting as well.
