SEATTLE (AP) — Four people including a metro bus driver were shot in Seattle Wednesday afternoon, and one person has been detained, police said.

Officers were on the scene with multiple victims in the Lake City neighborhood on the city’s north side, according to Twitter posts by the Seattle Police Department.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best told the Seattle Times that four people were shot and that one of them was killed.

King County Metro said on Twitter that at 4:05 p.m. a bus operator on Metro Route 75 hit their emergency alarm and reported that they were injured by a gunshot. Preliminary information was that none of the 12 passengers on board were injured, the agency said.

The bus driver was hit in the torso, but able to walk to a gurney to be taken to a hospital by paramedics, said Kenneth Price, president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 587.

Price says it’s unclear whether the driver was targeted.
