No arrests have been made

SAN ANTONIO – A VIA bus was caught in the crossfire in an apparent road rage shooting on the East Side, San Antonio police say.

The shooting happened before 8 p.m. on Wednesday in the 4300 block of Martin Luther King Drive.

San Antonio police said a 46-year-old man was driving eastbound on Martin Luther King Drive when a vehicle pulled up beside him and the occupants accused him of cutting off their vehicle.

The occupants pointed a handgun at the man, police said, and the man showed his own handgun. The 46-year-old drove off, and the suspect vehicle caught up to the man’s vehicle.

Police said the 46-year-old shot at the other car out of fear for his life, and the occupants in the other car returned fire.

At some point, a VIA bus with one driver and two passengers was caught in the gunfire.

Police believe shrapnel injured one passenger aboard the bus, and they were treated by paramedics at the scene. The other people on the bus were OK, according to officers.

The 46-year-old was detained nearby. Police said they’re still looking for the second driver.

The case remains under investigation and no arrests have been made, police said.
