Seattle, WA. | An 88-year old male shot a 51-year old man on a King County Metro transit bus on Saturday, January 26, 2019, around 1115 hours PST this morning, Seattle Police say. It appears there was some kind of disturbance between the two individuals on a bus located on 4th Avenue South and South Walker in Seattle.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing the younger man push the older gentleman as he attempted to board the bus, prompting the elderly man to present a gun and shoot the other man. The older man did fall striking his head on the stairwell as he attempted to exit the bus.
Both were held by Seattle Police until Seattle Fire arrived to take both persons to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center.
