Shots Fired at City Bus, Man Injured: Officials

A man was injured after shots were fired at an MTA bus Monday afternoon, according to the FDNY.

Authorities say an unknown suspect fired at the bus from the street at about 5:15 p.m. near Madison Avenue and East 105th Street in East Harlem.

The FDNY says a 31-year-old man who was on the street was shot in the foot and was treated on the scene.

Two bullets struck the bus, shattering the right side windows, according to the MTA.

No bus passengers were injured, but Barbara Hines, who was sitting on the other side of that glass, said it was a close call.

"I would either have been dead, paralyzed or incapacitated for life," Hines said.

Investigators were focusing their search for evidence inside the parking lot of the nearby Carver Houses, but they have not yet made any arrests.
