43-Year-Old Seattle Resident Identified As Person Killed In Oroville Greyhound Bus Shooting

OROVILLE (CBS13) — The woman killed in the Oroville bus shooting that left four other people hurt has been identified.

The shooting happened Wednesday night on a Greyhound bus that made a scheduled stop in Oroville. Passengers reported that the suspect, 21-year-old Asaahdi Elijah Coleman - had been acting erratically just before opening fire, Butte County authorities said.

Coleman allegedly started firing when people started to exit the bus. Five people were shot in the incident, with one of the victims dying at the scene.

On Friday, the Butte County Sheriff's Office identified the victim who died as 43-year-old Seattle resident Karin Dalton.

A 25-year-old pregnant woman and an 11-year-old girl, along with a 32-year-old and 38-year-old man, were among the other people hurt. The pregnant woman was in critical condition, the sheriff's office said, while the girl was listed as "stable."

Coleman was arrested after he ran from the scene into a Walmart down the road. Officials say he has had several run-ins in the law and was wanted out of Alameda County for being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.
