Friday’s shooting marks yet another violent incident taking place on Metro’s property. Over the last month, attacks on bus drivers, passengers and bystanders inside and outside the public transit vehicles have haunted Metro.

In a previous report published by FOX 11 on May 2024, at least seven attacks took place on Metro’s property between April 22 and May 21.
