The shooting happened, as the bus was coming off the Bay Bridge from San Francisco.

KTVU reporter Christien Kafton counted at least 9 bullet holes in the windows and side of the bus.

The bus driver was able to pull into Oakland, and flag down CHP officers who were conducting a traffic stop at 5th and Union Streets, near the Port of Oakland.

One person onboard the bus suffered critical injuries, and was taken to a local trauma center.

The person was listed in stable condition.

Three other passengers sustained minor injuries.

Authorities said no one onboard the bus would cooperate.

One person allegedly assaulted an officer who was attempting to interview her.

One of the shooting victims was being taken to the hospital in an ambulance, but forced her way out of the vehicle.

Investigators said they did not know her whereabouts.

No arrests has been made in the case either. The area around the Broadway offramp from Interstate 880 was closed for hours early Saturday morning, as officers investigated the shooting.
