Man indicted in shooting of woman on Columbus bus

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A prosecutor says a man accused of firing a shot that struck a woman on a Columbus bus has been indicted on 12 counts of felonious assault.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien says a grand jury on Wednesday indicted 19-year-old Anthony Saunders III of Columbus in the April 16 shooting.

O’Brien says Saunders allegedly was shooting at a car just as the bus pulled up to drop off a passenger. The prosecutor says a bus passenger hit in the head by a bullet was taken to a Columbus hospital.

Court records did not indicate if Saunders has an attorney.

The prosecutor says Saunders could face more than 20 years in prison if convicted.
