It's nice to know that our bus drivers are alert and listen to radioed police reports. Seems a homeless woman shot a disabled man yesterday at the bus stop on 6th and J Streets in downtown Sacramento. Eyewitnesses said she asked the man for money and he didn't give it to her. So, she pulled out a gun and shot him. Then she walked over to 9th Street and got on the bus.
The police boarded the bus at Riverside and Broadway in Land Park and arrested her. The bus driver notified the police after he recognized the shooter from the police radio description.
The victim is at UC Davis and expected to survive, thank goodness.
What kind of message does this send? That you better think twice before engaging in conversation with panhandlers these days? Snub 'em and they might shoot you? And remember to thank your Regional Transit bus driver.
