A 17-year-old was shot this morning around 8 a.m. on a school bus near 57th and Pine Streets. The shooter fled and police later arrested a 15-year-old suspect nine blocks away.

Reports indicate the two teens were involved in an argument when one pulled a gun on the other. The victim suffered a graze wound to the head and is expected to survive.

All the students on the bus attend Community Eductation Partners, an alternative education school at 43rd and Westminster.
