RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Richmond police are searching for a man who they say pointed a gun at a GRTC bus driver.

Police say the man was asked to leave the bus on Saturday for violating GRTC policy. It is unclear what policy was broken.

Per a release from law enforcement, the bus stopped at West Broad and Foushee streets while the man refused to leave.

After several minutes, police say he left the bus and removed his bike from the front rack. Then, he pulled out a gun and pointed it at the driver.

No one was injured during the incident.
