SEATTLE — A shooting on board a King County Metro bus sent a bus driver to the hospital and left two passengers slightly injured as they tried to escape from harm Monday morning.
The shooting happened during the height of the morning commute. That same afternoon, County Executive Dow Constantine, issued a public statement declaring that the transit system in King County is safe and this shooting was an isolated incident.
Constantine said, “The transit system is safe. The drivers who deliver hundreds of thousands of folks to their destinations every day are remarkably dedicated. I hope the next time you board a bus you will take a moment to thank your metro driver.”
