One Person Injured After Tuesday Evening Bus Shooting

The Kansas City, Mo., Police Department is investigating a Tuesday evening shooting on a Kansas City ATA bus.

KCPD Captain Tye Grant says police were dispatched to a bus at 39th and Prospect around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. He says shots were fired into the bus at an earlier stop, near Benton Avenue.

A 15-year-old girl was struck multiple times. Grant says she is at the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
