COOL VALLEY, Mo. (AP) _ Police are searching for a man who shot a fellow passenger on a MetroBus in suburban St. Louis, then followed the victim off the bus to kill him.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 35-year-old Kenneth Pointer was killed Saturday night in Cool Valley.

Authorities say surveillance cameras captured the shooting that police believe began with some sort of dispute on the bus. The suspect pulled out a gun and shot Pointer several times.
