Three to four rounds struck a Los Angeles Department of Transportation DASH bus, Los Angeles Police Sgt. Thomas Bojorquez said.

A female adult, about age 60, was grazed in the head by one of the shots and was transported to a local hospital, where she was listed in stable condition, Bojorquez said. It is possible the woman was injured by shattered glass, but police are treating her injury as a gunshot wound, he said.
