One person has died and four were injured after a shooting inside a Greyhound bus on Wednesday.

The shooting in Butte County, California, happened outside of an ampm convenience store. The Oroville Police Department said they started getting calls about a shooting around 7:35 p.m. local time.

The police department sent first responders, only to find “several subjects suffering from gunshot wounds” who were transported to local hospitals. One person died on the scene despite first responders attempting life-saving measures.

The shooter fled the scene before law enforcement arrived, officials said. The police department reported getting additional calls claiming that the suspect was seen in a local Walmart. Law enforcement took the person into custody and placed him in the local jail.

“Our primary concern at this time is the safety of our driver and passengers. We are working closely with local authorities,” Greyhound Lines, Inc told ABC10.

Oroville Mayor Chuck Reynolds announced the arrest on Facebook. Reynolds also said there was a physical confrontation at Walmart but no gunfire, KOVR-TV of Sacramento reported.

The identity of the victims and the alleged shooter have not been revealed by law enforcement.
