PITTSBURGH — A 17-year-old was shot while riding a school bus home Monday night in Pittsburgh.
Around 6:30 p.m., police were called to a hospital, where they spoke to the student who had been on the bus after leaving New Academy Charter School.
The bus driver drove the victim to the hospital and told police she had heard two to three shots.
One of those shots hit the 17-year-old boy in the shoulder.
Police said the shooting occurred in Arlington near Spring Street and Arlington Avenue.
"I heard three distinct shots, definitely the sound of a firearm discharging,” said Kait Rogers, who heard the commotion. "We were just sitting in our living room in the house and we could hear it. Our walls are thin so we could hear it very distinctly through the wall."
