The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department on Saturday is searching for a gunman who shot and wounded two men inside an MTA bus in Hollywood.

The shooting was reported about 8 p.m. Friday when the bus was near Wilton Place and Santa Monica Boulevard, said Lt. Steve Brannigan of the Sheriff's transit unit. The motive for the shooting was not known, but Brannigan said it was most likely from an argument.

One man was shot in the arm and was taken by fire paramedics to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The man was listed in stable condition. Another was grazed on the leg and was also taken by paramedics to Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center, where after several hours he was released, Brannigan said.

A description of the gunman, who ran away after the shooting, was unavailable.
