MILLVALE, OH (FOX19) - Police are looking for a suspect after an altercation on a Metro bus led to two people being shot.

It happened just after 9 a.m. in the 3100 block of Beekman Ave. Metro officials say two men were shot - one in the hand and the other in the stomach.

According to police, 24-year-olds Tony Berry and Lashawan Davis boarded a Metro Bus. Davis' ex-boyfriend, 24 year-old Julius Trollinger, saw them boarding the bus and  the two men started to fight. Police say that both Berry and Trollinger father children with Davis.

During the altercation, one of the men dropped a gun, then Trollinger picks it up and fires shots. He shot Berry in the stomach and hits a bystander in the arm.

Tony Berry  was taken to University Hospital where he is undergoing surgery. The bystander has been released from the hospital.

The shooting took place near a private ambulance company, so both victims ran there to get help as first responders arrived.

Two guns were recovered at the scene.

Metro officials say the bus was coming from Northside toward downtown Cincinnati. The bus was almost full with about 20 people on board. The driver pulled the buss over to let the other passengers out.

Police have issued a warrant for Julius Trollinger on two counts of Felonious Assault.
