Detroit police are on the lookout for a man accused of shooting up a Detroit Department of Transportation bus after being kicked off Sunday night for his part in a lover’s quarrel.

On Sunday evening, about 8:35 p.m., a man and a woman were arguing on Detroit’s east side.

The woman, hoping to leave the argument, got on a DDOT bus, but the man followed her.

Their argument continued on the bus, said Michael Woody, director of media relations for the Detroit Police Department. In the area of Harper and Beaconsfield, east of Outer Drive East, the driver kicked the man off the bus. But as the bus was pulling away, the man allegedly pulled out a gun and fired two rounds at the door. No one was hit or hurt in the shooting.

The man fled, Woody said, but the police know who they’re looking for. No arrests have yet been made.
