1 dead, 5 hurt, shooter in custody

A woman was killed and five people wounded when a gunman opened fire on a Greyhound bus in California early Monday, authorities said.

A man was in custody after the shooting along the Grapevine section of Interstate 5 in Kern County, about 80 miles north of Los Angeles, California Highway Patrol Sgt. Brian Pennings said. No motive for the attack had been determined, he said.

“I will tell you the bus driver, his actions were very appropriate,” Pennings said. “One could say heroic.”

A 911 call came in at 1:27 a.m. local time saying a man had shot several passengers on the bus, which had been bound for San Francisco from Los Angeles. Pennings said the driver immediately pulled the bus onto the shoulder of the highway and managed to get the shooter to exit the bus, leaving the gun behind.

The driver, whom Pennings did not name, then pulled off the highway at the next exit, parking the bus at a gas station.
