Third teen in Metro Transit bus shooting charged
17-year-old woman facing assault charge
A 17-year-old girl wanted for questioning after a shooting on a Metro Transit bus in Dartmouth last week has turned herself in, say Halifax Regional Police.
Halifax Regional Police told CBC News the teenager was taken into custody after arriving at police headquarters on Gottingen Street at approximately 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
She's scheduled to appear in youth court later on Tuesday, facing charges of assault and causing a disturbance.
Two other teenagers are charged in the incident, which happened last Thursday. Halifax Regional Police said the number 72 bus was carrying seven passengers on Pinecrest Drive when a fight erupted among three passengers.
A shot was fired, but no one was hit.
A 16 year-old boy is facing charges of attempted murder, assault with a weapon and numerous weapons-related offences. An 18 year-old is charged with assault and causing a disturbance.
