Witness Shannon Pendiver was there when the bus pulled over.

“That scene was, like, really bad. Like, I’ve never seen that much blood in my life. And it  must have been really bad because they wrapped it, and then the blood was still pouring out. So I just hope whoever’s mom, grandmother that is, that she is OK because it could have been anybody on the bus,” Pendiver said.

Dozens of people were also on board the bus at the time, but there were no reports of other injuries.

“She seemed really scared, ’cause she was holding onto herself,” Pendiver added.

The victim was hospitalized in stable condition.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). You can also submit a tip via their website or on Twitter, @NYPDTips. All calls are kept confidential.
