A man was shot Saturday night after he got into an argument on a CTA bus in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side.

About 10:20 p.m., the 21-year-old got into an argument with three people while on CTA bus No. 119 in the 100 block of West 119th Street, authorities said.

The bus driver asked the people involved in the argument to exit the bus, which they did, said CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski.

Once they were on the sidewalk, the argument continued and one of the three people pulled out a gun and fired shots, police said. The 22-year-old suffered a graze wound to the leg and was taken in good condition to Roseland Community Hospital.

The three people were being questioned Saturday night, police said. Area South detectives are investigating.
