Seattle [USA]: Two persons were killed and two others were injured after a gunman opened fire on several vehicles including a Metro bus, and carjacked a vehicle here on Tuesday.

According to Seattle Police, the gunman, who is now in custody, approached a driver near Sand Point Way Northeast and Bartlett Avenue Northeast. “The suspect shot the female driver, critically injuring her, before walking into the street and firing on a southbound Metro bus. The driver was struck by gunfire, but was able to turn the bus around and head north, away from the gunman,” said Seattle Police Department in a press release.

“The suspect then approached a second motorist, in a red Prius, and opened fire, killing the driver,” it said. “Police arrived and contacted the suspect, who climbed into the Prius and fled the scene at a rate of high speed. He collided with another vehicle a short distance away, killing the other driver. Police were able to take him into custody after a brief standoff,” read the press release. The armed suspect was later taken to Harborview Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries. He is being kept under police guard at the Center.
