YONKERS, N.Y. (WABC) — A teenager was injured after someone opened fire on a bus in Yonkers.

Investigators spent hours collecting evidence from cameras on board a Bee-Line bus after the shooting Friday afternoon.

Jenna was on the phone with a friend near the scene when someone opened fire.

“We heard three loud bangs and I thought the gate was closing. It’s like, ‘they’re shooting at the bus,’ and I see people running out of the bus,” she said.

The entire bus then emptied, and nearly three dozen passengers ran to escape gunfire immediately after the bus came to a stop on a busy stretch of South Broadway in Yonkers.

“The bus driver tells us he heard some gunshots and some people were getting off the bus and then everyone decided it would be a good idea to get off the bus as well,” Kieran O’Leary said.

An 18-year-old Yonkers man who had just boarded the bus was shot in both legs and was hospitalized in stable condition.

Immediately after the shooting, a group of teenagers jumped off the bus and ran away. Police want to know if the shooter was part of the group.

As of late Friday night, there was no public description of the man with the gun — much less an understanding of the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

Detectives are still trying to determine if the victim was actually the target of violence.
