2008_10_06_kiyanna.jpgKiyanna Salters, 17, was killed in a shooting on a No. 71 bus Sunday night. The incident happened around 10 p.m. as the bus approached the intersection of Cottage Grove and 71st Street. A man on the bus got into an argument with another passenger before exiting the bus. Shortly after exiting the bus, the man opened fire into the bus before fleeing the scene. Kiyanna was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead shortly after 10:30 p.m. She was a student at Julian High School, the same school that Blair Holt, the 16-year-old shot onboard a CTA bus in May 2007, attended. Police still are not sure whether or not Kiyanna was the intended target.
