The school bus was hit by bullets, as was an MTA bus that had dozens of passengers on it, the sources said.None of the children or the people on the city bus were injured. Multiple vehicles were also hit in the barrage of bullets.A 32-year-old man who was shot multiple times in the abdomen was taken to a hospital in critical condition and later died. His name has not been released.Chopper 4 showed an army of law enforcement officers at the scene. The entire block radius was cordoned off by caution tape as authorities checked out the bus and canvassed the scene for evidence. The search for a suspect is ongoing. The city’s Department of Education said in a statement that NYPD and EMS immediately responded and confirmed no children were hurt. “We immediately notified the family and will provide any additional support needed,” a spokeswoman said.
