LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The woman shot and killed while riding a city bus in Lincoln Thursday has been identified as 69-year-old Sharon Johnson of Lincoln.

Joel Jones, 27, was arrested for second-degree murder in connection to the shooting, while 19-year-old Jarell Wheeler was arrested for accessory to second-degree murder.

Jones was also lodged for possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person, discharging a firearm near a vehicle and using a firearm to commit a felony.

Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister said Jones fired a single shot from a moving vehicle traveling in the opposite direction of the bus, which entered the bus and struck Johnson while she was seated. Bliemeister said Wheeler was driving the car at the time.

According to LPD, the shooting appeared to be a random act, but an investigation will determine a motive.
