PHOENIX — Two people were taken to the hospital on Saturday night following a shooting in central Phoenix.
Officers responded to an incident shortly after 7 p.m. near 35th and Dunlap avenues after learning of a shooting outside a business. They learned one man was shot and left the area in a vehicle.
Once arriving on the scene, police found that a stray bullet struck a bus which was stopped in the road nearby. The bullet had hit a window in the bus which caused glass to hit the bus driver in the face. They were then taken to a local medical facility for evaluation.
Police would later get a call from 30th Avenue and Butler Drive where they would find the gunshot victim who had left the scene. The man, who was not identified, was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
There were no other injuries reported and no suspects have been detained.
The investigation is ongoing.
