LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities in Las Vegas say a 20-year-old man was fatally wounded by a gunshot to the stomach after an argument on a public transit bus, and several assailants are sought.

Police Lt. Dan McGrath tells KSNV-TV (https://bit.ly/2hD6SSm ) the shooter could be a teenager, and one of the people with him was wearing all-red jumpsuit.

The shooting happened a little before 5:45 p.m. Thursday as the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada bus stopped near Washington Avenue and Pecos Road.

Police say the victim and a woman he was with were arguing with as many as three male passengers before one fired a shot as the shooter got off the bus.

The victim died at University Medical Center.

McGrath says surveillance video from the bus should help identify the assailant.
