Maui County officials are asking for the public’s help in finding the person or persons involved in shooting at Maui County bus windows.
County officials believe a BB or pellet gun was used four times in December while the bus was traveling on the Wailuku Loop route, a county news release issued today said.
Bus personnel discovered the projectile holes and cracked windows after the buses had returned to the Roberts Tour and Transportation headquarters.
Damages were found on the driver’s side of all four buses.
A police report was filed for each shooting.
The latest shooting occurred at 5:50 p.m. Dec. 30 when a Maui Bus was making a right turn onto Kehalani Makai Parkway from Kamole Street. A bus passenger heard the impact from the shot and saw the cracked window, and immediately informed the driver.
“We are very fortunate that our passengers were not injured by the shots fired, not to mention the cost to the taxpayer to replace these windows,” Maui County Transportation Director Don Medeiros said in a written statement. “I don’t know if someone thinks this is a game or if they are actually trying to do someone bodily harm, but this needs to stop immediately.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 244-6400.
