US News

A man has been arrested in a supermarket, naked, following a mass shooting on a bus in northern California in which a woman died and two others were seriously injured.

Passengers were targeted as they exited the Los Angeles-bound bus at a convenience shop in Oroville on Wednesday evening, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said.

Asaahdi Coleman, 21, who had boarded in Redding, was arrested in a Walmart store about half a mile away where he got into a fight with a customer.

As he walked away from the confrontation, he began to take his clothes off, Mr Honea said.

A dozen 9mm bullet casings were later recovered on the bus, which had a bullet hole in its windscreen.

The gun was later found on a nearby construction site.

A 43-year-old female passenger died. Two others, including a 25-year-old pregnant woman and 32-year-old man who was shot multiple times, are in a critical condition.

A girl, 11, and a man, 38, were also treated for injuries following what police described as a “horrific tragedy”.

Coleman told passengers that Los Angeles was a dangerous city and showed them a firearm he was carrying in a satchel, Mr Honea said.

He also became agitated and accused one of them of being an undercover police officer, the sheriff added, exhibiting “what could best be described as paranoid behaviour”.

Butte County District Attorney, Michael Ramsey, said Coleman lives a “somewhat transient life” and is wanted on an Alameda County warrant for possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.

According to court documents, prosecutors in Sacramento filed felony charges against Coleman in July last year for violating prohibition of firearm access.

He was released on bail and was due to appear in court next month, The Sacramento Bee newspaper reported.
