LOS ANGELES (AP) A man suspected of shooting into a crowd at a South Los Angeles bus stop, wounding five children and three adults, was arrested Thursday, police said.
Billy Ray Hines, 24, was taken into custody while walking on a street less than a half-mile from Wednesday's attack after detectives recognized him in security surveillance video that recorded the scene, Police Chief Bill Bratton said at a news conference.
"We believe the incident was sparked by a dispute between the shooter and two other individuals who we believe were the intended victims," Bratton said. During the assault, "eight innocent individuals, including five children, were struck."
The children were walking home from school when they were hit, he said.
