Man shot at RTA bus shelter recovering at hospital

CLEVELAND - RTA police shot a man at a west-side bus stop after confronting him for allegedly causing a disturbance, 19 Action News reported.

The shooting happened just before 4 p.m. on Wednesday at the RTA bus shelter on the corner of West 140th Street and Puritas Avenue in Cleveland.

After receiving a call, authorities arrived at the scene and approached the suspect, who was allegedly drunk and causing a ruckus.

At that point, 46-year-old Wendell Card pulled out a weapon, which turned out to be a BB gun. That prompted the officers to open fire.

"I saw it from a distance," one witness said. "I saw somebody run and then I heard gunshots."

Card was transported to Fairview Hospital, where he is in stable condition.

The officers involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave until the Cleveland Police Department concludes its investigation. They were not injured in the altercation.
