A passenger on a Metro bus in South Los Angeles was injured in a shooting Friday night.

The shot was fired from outside the bus, which came to a stop at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Vermont Avenue, said sheriff’s Metro Transit Bureau Lt. Lester Trull.

It was not clear if the passenger was struck by a bullet or broken glass, said Jose Ubaldo of Metro.

The passenger was struck as the bus, which had been diverted from its original route because of police activity, was making a left turn from Saint Andrews Place to 39th Street, Ubaldo said.

The shooting occurred around 10:17 p.m., Trull said.

The bus was carrying 40 passengers, Trull said.

A female victim of the shooting drove herself to the Los Angeles Police Department‘s Southwest Division station, according to broadcast reports.
