Officers were called around 1:00 p.m. to reports of a shooting on a King County Metro bus while it was driving in Kent.

At the same time, officers also identified a 35-year-old man with minor injuries, who told police the other man had attacked him on the bus.

An early investigation suggests the 29-year-old approached the other man on the bus and started a fight with him. At one point, police believe the 35-year-old shot him once.
