FRUIT HEIGHTS, Utah (AP) — The Latest on gunfire hitting a public bus in Utah (all times local):
Police say they believe a public bus in Utah traveling on a highway was accidently hit by a bullet when someone fired shots from a nearby peach orchard, but authorities haven’t yet found the shooter.
Davis County Chief Deputy Ty Berger said Monday that no one was injured on the bus or in a semitrailer that was also hit by a bullet when five to 10 shots were fired from the orchard before sunrise.
Berger says investigators believe the shooting was accidental because authorities found what they believe was the point where the shots were fired and that thick and tall trees would have prevented the shooter from seeing the highway where the bus was taking commuters to Salt Lake City.
The passengers were transferred to another bus to finish the route.
— This version corrects that the bus was on a highway when it was hit, not in a park-and-ride lot.
Officials say shots were fired at a public bus in Utah and bullets hit the bus but no one was hurt.
Utah Transit Authority spokesman Carl Arky says one bullet went through a window, missing 12 passengers and the driver.
Arky says a commercial truck that was nearby was also hit by a bullet.
The bus was at a park and ride-and-ride-lot between the city of Ogden and Salt Lake City when the shooting happened.
The Davis County Sheriff’s Office and the Utah Highway Patrol are investigating.
