Man Shot on Bus Was Trying to Quiet "Jerks"

A Twin Cities man was shot in the chest when he tried to quiet some unruly passengers on a Metro Transit bus Thursday night.

Cleveland Montgomery, 34, is in critical condition at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, Minn., the Star Tribune reported.

The crime has caused local police, Metro Transit, and local activists to focus more effort on keeping buses, especially Route 5, safe.
