Authorities are looking for an individual who shot a person riding a Broward County Transit bus Saturday afternoon in Plantation. The subject fledand then fled on foot.

A suspect in Saturday afternoon’s Broward County Transit bus shooting caught on camera has been arrested, Plantation police said Sunday morning.

Michael Porter, a 5-foot-1 24-year-old resident of Sunrise, turned himself in Sunday morning. He’s in Broward Main Jail on a charge of attempted premeditated murder.

The perimeter set up for Saturday’s search for a suspect kept some residents out of the Westport and Nob Hill Estates neighborhoods from about 3:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.

Police say a verbal argument between two men on the bus turned into a shooting as the bus headed east on Broward Boulevard, just past Nob Hill Road.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated as more is learned.
