The bus driver and one of the individuals involved in the disturbance were among those shot, but none of the injuries were life-threatening, Hall said.
One of the people involved in the argument — who police said knew each other — pulled out a handgun. At the time, there were a few other passengers aboard the bus but it was nowhere near capacity, he said.
Hall said it is believed police found everyone involved in the shooting.
“It’s a horribly regrettable incident. An altercation leading to a situation … actually did result in serious injury to several individuals, but very certainly could have resulted in someone losing their life,” Hall said.
RTA’s CEO Robert Ruzinsky released a statement Tuesday thanking police and medics for their actions.
“RTA is thankful to the actions of the first responders who assisted our employee and eventually apprehended the suspects,” he said. “Their quick response, professionalism, and dedication made a difficult situation manageable. Our driver is expected to recover and our employees took care of our customers.”
The hub was closed for a couple of hours but reopened Tuesday evening.
