A Florida man is in custody after turning himself in for shooting a fellow bus passenger during an altercation.
Twenty-four-year-old Michael V. Porter has been charged with attempted first-degree murder, reported ABC News10 of Florida. The fight took place on a Broward County Transit bus, the news station said, when Porter began arguing with another passenger. The conflict escalated, the passenger pushed Porter down into a seat and began punching him, and Porter produced a gun and shot him, Plantation police said.
Terrified passengers fled the altercation, which was caught on surveillance video.
“One guy got on top of another guy and started choking him, and then the other guy pulled out a gun and shot a round off,” passenger Stephone Robinson told the news station.
Porter fled after the shooting, which happened at around 3 p.m. on Saturday. Police launched an intensive search along with a helicopter and other law enforcement agencies for more than five hours late Saturday, shutting down a section of Broward Boulevard. They did not find him, but Porter turned himself in early Sunday.
