The shooting, which was reported near the Montbello Shopping Center Park and Ride in the area of Albrook Drive and Peoria Street, happened at around 5 p.m., said Nate Currey with the Regional Transportation District. 

An RTD bus passenger was shot after he had exited the bus in the Montbello neighborhood, according to Currey.

Police told Denver7 reporter, Kyle Horan, they are questioning multiple witnesses and are reviewing all of the surveillance cameras of the nearby businesses.
