Police fatally shoot man who wounded 3 passengers on bus

A 54-year-old man who shot three people on a city bus in Kalamazoo has died after being wounded while exchanging gunfire with police.

Kalamazoo Public Safety Chief Vernon Coakley said Anthony Oliver died Saturday at a hospital following the 9:15 a.m. shootings at the Kalamazoo Transportation Center.

The motive behind the shootings was not immediately clear, Coakley said, adding that “the suspect boarded a bus and began firing rounds.”

Oliver was struck after exchanging gunfire with several officers who responded to the report of shots fired on the bus, Coakley said.

No officers were wounded.

Coakley said it wasn’t immediately clear if Oliver knew any of the passengers. Their injuries were not considered life-threatening.  (AP)
