St. Paul Shooting

Fox 9 Tv News described today's St. Paul bus stop shooting as random, but KSTP News reports that the victim knew the attacker: "Man shot as he steps off bus in St. Paul".

A man was shot as he stepped off of a public bus Monday around 4 p.m. on St. Paul's east side.

The streets near 3rd St. and Bates Ave. reopened around 6 p.m. as police searched for the suspect.

The man apparently got off the bus and was shot in the side, under his arm.

The suspect is described as an 18- or 19-year-old white male wearing a blue baseball cap and a black and white shirt. It's not clear yet if the suspect was on the bus with the victim.

The victim was rushed to Regions Hospital and is listed in stable condition.
Let's hope they find this sewer rat, and soon.
