OAKLAND (CBS SF/AP) — Authorities were looking for a group of teenagers who opened fire on a transit bus early Saturday.

Witnesses say the four teens had had just gotten off an AC Transit bus at 55th Ave and International Blvd. when they started shooting at the bus as it pulled away.

Passengers walked away with only minor injuries, a spokesman for the transit service said.

Around 12:20 a.m., AC Transit officials received reports that someone had opened fire on a bus near the intersection of 55th Avenue and International Boulevard, spokesman Clarence Johnson said.

The teens fired five shots at the bus, shattering its back window.

None of the nine passengers inside the bus were hit by the gunfire.

Four passengers reported minor injuries after falling as the bus driver sped up to get away from the shooter.

Johnson said those passengers were taken to hospitals, while the remaining passengers were transferred to another AC Transit bus.

It’s not known what sparked the shooting, but police said there were no arguments before the shooting.

No arrests have been made.

Police did not have any further information on the incident Saturday morning.
