BROWN DEER, Wis. (AP) - Authorities in the Milwaukee suburb of Brown Deer say they’re looking for witnesses to an officer-involved shooting of a Milwaukee County Transit System bus passenger on Monday.

Police Chief Michael Kass says the 26-year-old man remains hospitalized in stable condition Thursday. He says the case has been referred to prosecutors for possible charges against him of assaulting the two officers, who were treated and released for injuries they suffered in the confrontation. The officers remain on administrative leave.

The man was on board an MCTS bus when the driver asked police for help with an unruly passenger about 5 p.m. Monday.

Police say the officers got the passenger off the bus, and he was shot after a struggle ensued.
