Caroline Lukas, a Metro spokeswoman, said the driver suffered a contusion on his leg, but she could not confirm its source. It was unclear whether he had been shot. The window behind him had been broken by a bullet, according to a Metro union official.
There were passengers on the bus and waiting at the stop, but authorities were unable to say how many. On Monday, only wet leaves and long strands of yellow police tape marked the scene. B2 buses continued to make stops as usual, even as police checked the area with metal detectors.

Federal court overstepped its authority by halting Wolfe’s retrial, 4th Circuit Court rules.
The suspects took an undisclosed sum of cash, jewelry and electronics.
Kucik said detectives are reviewing video surveillance tape from the bus that might show the shooting.
As part of the effort to find the suspect, a law enforcement official said, officers searched a house near East Capitol Street. A man who shouted through the door said he had no comment about Foster.
When police first made public the identity of their suspect, Kucik described Foster as “armed and dangerous.” Police announced a reward up to $25,000 for information leading to his capture and conviction.
Details of Foster’s apparent trip to New York were not immediately available.
Naomi Ferguson said she thinks Brown’s breakup with Foster led to the deadly attack, although she said she doesn’t know what happened in recent days. But the family was well aware of Foster’s past: He was was sentenced to 18 months in jail in 2011 for violating the terms of his probation after a 2007 conviction for possession and selling PCP, according to D.C. Superior Court records. In 2010, court documents show that Foster was sentenced to 30 days in jail for an assault stemming from a charge that he bit his then-girlfriend, pulled her hair, choked her, punched her and dragged her down the stairs after she received text messages from another man.
Naomi Ferguson said family members pleaded with Brown, a home health aide who wanted to join the military, to leave Foster. In the court petition filed in February, she alleged child neglect against him and added that joint custody would not be in the best interest of the child.
She asked the court to work out a visitation schedule for Foster and his daughter but did not seek child support. Naomi Ferguson described her son as devastated by what happened. “Selina was taken out at the prime of her life,” she said. “My heart is full of sorrow.”
