Among those wounded was Metro bus driver Eric Stark, who was able to back his bus up and steer it out of harm's way after getting shot, thus sparing his 12 passengers from injury. "I am unspeakably grateful to the King County Metro driver who acted to save lives," Mayor Jenny Durkan told The Seattle Times. As for the assailant, he was apprehended and taken to the hospital in satisfactory condition after colliding with another car during his getaway attempt.
