Two separate buses were shot at on Tuesday evening at around 7.15pm and half an hour later, at 7.45pm. The LUP buses were each hit twice whilst they were in the Mariazellerstrasse area. A wheel on one of the buses was badly damaged.
The Transport Association for the Eastern Region (VOR) said that the passengers on the buses were not in any danger. However, for security reasons the bus service on that route was suspended for the rest of the evening.
Police believe the shots were fired from a small caliber gun or air rifle. The damaged buses have now been repaired and are back in service.
