70-year-old woman shot on bus in Brooklyn

A gunman opened fire in a busy intersection in Brooklyn, wounding a bystander riding a bus on Tuesday afternoon, police said.

The gunfire erupted near Fulton Street and Tompkins Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant at about 2:40 p.m., the NYPD said.

One round grazed a 70-year-old woman's head, Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said. She was sitting near the back of a B25 bus, which was driving along its route on Fulton Street. 

The gunman was wearing a red or orange jacket, jeans, and white sneakers, Harrison said. He fired several times. 

The bus driver heard popping sounds, a union official said.

Passengers ducked down and told the driver that the woman was hurt, police said.

The wounded woman was taken to the hospital and is listed in stable condition.
