SHARE Three released after questioning about argument on CTA bus prior to shooting

Three people who were being questioned by police after a man was shot during an argument that began on a CTA bus Saturday night on the Far South Side have been released.

About 10:20 p.m., the 21-year-old victim got into an argument with three people won 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, CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski said.

Once they were on the sidewalk, the argument continued and one of the three pulled a gun and fired shots, police said. The 21-year-op suffered a graze wound to the leg and was taken in good condition to Roseland Community Hospital.

Three people were initially taken in for questioning Saturday night, but have since been released, police said Wednesday morning.

Area South detectives are continuing their investigation.
