A fight broke out on a bus in Florida that ended with a man shooting another passenger, leaving terrified commuters running for their lives. Police say the suspect has turned himself in.

The incident unfolded in broad daylight Saturday afternoon on a Broward County Transit bus.  

Plantation police say 24-year-old, 5'1, Michael Porter took out a gun and shot the other passenger after the two had been locked in a violent fist fight. 

It is unknown what had sparked the fight, but the men were heard screaming at each other in the video, as a woman shouts 'Please! Please!'

As the argument escalates, the passenger tells Porter, 'I will crush you.'

Porter responds: 'I will kill you. I swear to God. I have a gun,' and then points his hand to mimic the shape of gun and blurts out 'Bang, bang, bang.' 

When he actually took out the gun, passengers ran for their lives.

'One guy got on top of another guy and started choking him, and then the other guy pulled out a gun and shot a round off,' passenger Stephone Robinson told ABC10

'Everybody just panicked, got off the bus and followed the suspect with the gun. He got off the bus after and the guy that got shot chased after him,' Robinson said. 

However, Porter managed to escape.  

Police kept some residents out of the Westport and Nob Hill Estates neighborhoods from about 3.30 until 8.30pm. 

Meanwhile the man who was shot was taken to Broward Health Medical Center and is expected to survive. 

Police say Porter turned himself in Sunday morning, according to the Miami Herald.

He's in Broward Main Jail on a charge of attempted premeditated murder.

@Alicia Johnson;  You already know. Jim Crow blows!

The gunman's words is what has him in jail. He should of kept his mouth shut and after firing his gun if he said he faired for his life, because the other man was choking him, he would of been in his right to defend himself,but his mouth got him in trouble

You so right Alicia. Why do you think the Black Panthers got it so bad. Rules don't apply while black.

Ok so I guess Stand your Ground laws don’t apply when it’s a black man with a gun.
