Seattle grieves; bus driver called a hero

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and King County Executive Dow Constantine say they are grieving with the loved ones of a man who was fatally shot and another who was killed in an automobile crash after police say a man used a handgun to fire at motorists in a city neighborhood.

City leaders also pledged to support two people who were injured, including a woman shot in her vehicle and a Metro bus driver who was shot in what police believe was a random act by a man they have taken into custody.

Constantine identified the bus driver as 53-year-old Eric Stark, calling him a hero for moving the bus to a safe location after he was shot.

Police Chief Carmen Best said on Twitter that her heart goes out to those affected and that gun violence has no place in the city.
