Shooter Arrested on Bus in Land Park

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

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.

Elizabth...good grief! We use to live in Salinas with bars on most homes. Violence was all around us. I have to say we feel safer in Redding. No place is completely safe....but it does feel better!

Hi Jeanean: Well, we don't have a lot of violence, so it's kind of weird that something like that happened. At least it didn't happen in Land Park. Most of the shootings we hear about are in South Sacramento, Oak Park or Elk Grove . . . sometimes North Sacramento. When you really think about it, though, as a society, I think we are becoming more violent.

Elizabeth - Good for the bus driver!  I'm glad he was alert and not afraid to speak up!  :)

Hi Debi: I think she still had the gun on her, so the driver may have protected everybody else on the bus as well. None of the news sources did a very good job at covering the details.
