A gunman killed one passenger and wounded five others on a Greyhound bus traveling from Los Angeles to the San Francisco Bay Area early Monday morning, the California Highway Patrol said.

The shooting happened at about 1:20 a.m. as the bus was on the Grapevine section of Interstate 5 high in the mountains between Los Angeles and the San Joaquin Valley.

The bus driver somehow managed to get the shooter off the bus and left him on the highway shoulder, where he was arrested without incident, Sergeant Brian Pennings told reporters.

The gunman left the weapon on the bus, CBS affiliate KBAK-TV reports.

Pennings had no immediate information about the motive. After leaving the gunman behind, the driver continued on to the next exit and pulled into the parking lot of a gas station.

The Kern County sheriff's and fire departments responded to the scene near Lebec in Kern County, north of Los Angeles and south of Bakersfield, according to local news outlets.

Photos from the scene showed the bus parked at a Valero gas station at the base of the Grapevine section of the freeway.
