Shooting grazes woman on Metro bus on Aurora Avenue North

A woman on a King County Metro Transit bus was grazed by gunfire Friday night when someone in a car began shooting at the bus.

About 9:30 p.m., there was a disturbance at the bus stop at Aurora Avenue North and North 65th Street. When the southbound bus arrived, two men involved got on.

Shortly after, someone started firing at the bus, trying to hit the two men, police Capt. Neil Low said. Instead, a woman on the bus was grazed on the head. Authorities had earlier reported the victim was a man.

The driver stopped at North 60th Street. The shooter remains at large, as does one of the men on the bus, who fled after the shooting.

Seattle police and King County sheriff’s deputies are investigating.
