A bus driver was shot while driving, crashing the transport into a utility pole and now police say a suspect has been arrested.
Around 7 p.m. on Dec. 3, the Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis police said officers responded to a call of a reported shooting.
According to authorities, shots were fired from outside the bus, and one of the bullets hit the driver, 33-year-old Jonathan Cobb. The bus then crashed into a utility pole.
Officials said Cobb was taken to a local hospital in critical condition, but nobody else on the bus was injured.
About 10 minutes before this shooting took place, detectives stated another Metro bus was hit by gunfire. Police said a passenger was struck by flying glass.
After reviewing surveillance footage, officials said they saw a maroon PT Cruiser in both shooting locations, KMOV4 reported.
On Dec. 6, police found a similar vehicle in North City, Missouri, and a chase started. The driver, 30-year-old Isaiah Houston, was caught and taken into custody.
Houston has been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and one count of resisting arrest, police said. He is being held on a $60,000 bond.
