PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Three men accused of being involved in the shooting of a Philadelphia bus after one passenger complained about another are being held for trial.

Prosecutors played surveillance video of the shooting in court Thursday. Cameras mounted in the city bus show men outside brandishing guns and passengers hitting the floor.

Authorities say the June 18 violence was spurred by a passenger who chided a female rider for disciplining her son on the bus. The female then made a cellphone call.

Three men were waiting for her when she got off in North Philadelphia. Two were armed. Authorities say one fired 13 bullets into the bus as it drove away. No one was hurt.

A Municipal Court judge has ordered the men and the female passenger to stand trial on charges including attempted murder and conspiracy.
