CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A man was shot in West Price Hill near Glenway Market Wednesday morning, according to the Cincinnati Police Department.

Police say the victim was near a Metro bus stop on Rutledge Street when the suspect shot him in the leg.

According to Metro’s external affairs spokesperson, Brandy Jones, the bus driver called 911 to send a medical response team for an injured person.

The suspected shooter ran from the scene but was soon arrested by District 3 officers. He has been identified as 19-year-old Raquan Morris, according to police.

The victim was taken to the hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries, Cincinnati Police Sgt. Anthony Mitchell said.

The handful of students who were on the bus at the time of the incident will be given access to counselors and mental health support, CPS added.

Morris will be in court Thursday.

The shooting is still under investigation by Cincinnati police.
