A man is charged with attempted murder after allegedly shooting at a CTA bus driver when the driver refused to let him board because he wouldn’t wear a mask.

Fred White, 37, took out a gun and fired several shots as the bus drove away in the 300 block of West 119th Street in West Pullman, Chicago police said.

Two bullets struck the doors of the bus but no one was hit, according to police, who said White was aiming at the female driver who had asked him to wear a mask.

White, of Englewood, was arrested two minutes later, at 10:35 p.m., near 118th and Princeton, police said.

He’s also charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, unauthorized possession of a weapon and possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number. Police said he was also wanted on two warrants.

Court records show White has two pending aggravated DUI cases from April.

White was expected to appear in court later Thursday.
