The suspect was taken into custody less than two blocks from the scene, where he had earlier stood in the street and opened fire, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Transit Services Bureau. His name was not immediately released.

The incident was reported about 2:50 p.m. near the intersection of North Coronado Street and Bellevue Avenue (map), said sheriff’s Lt. Lester Trull. The driver was struck by a gunshot that shattered the vehicle’s front window, Trull said.

He was transported to a hospital and treated for the injury, which was not life-threatening, the lieutenant said.

An unknown number of passengers were aboard the southbound Metro line 603 bus at the time. None of them were injured, the Sheriff’s Department said.

Investigators were also examining another vehicle that was fired upon, according to officials.
