The release said around 9:50 p.m. Thursday, a Jackson Transit Authority bus driver
reported that an individual, with at least one other person, shot two or three times into his bus as he passed them on Tracewood Cove, near Raintree Cove, breaking glass. The driver left the area and called for police to come to the Kmart lot, located at 732 Old Hickory Blvd.
The release said there was one passenger on the bus during the shooting that left before police arrived. The driver was not injured and did not believe the passenger had been injured either. The driver was a substitute driver on the route.
Investigators would like to speak with the passenger as a witness to the incident, the release said. He is described as being a black male, in his late teens to early 20’s, about 5 feet and 10 inches tall, with a dark complexion and “bad teeth”. He may have been talking on a cell phone when the shooting occurred.
He is asked to contact Jackson Police Inv. Aubrey Richardson at 425-8470.
