A party bus carrying Morgan Wallen fans from his Milwaukee concert was struck by gunfire Saturday night.

Milwaukee police said that the shots were fired around 11:50 p.m. as the Lou’s Limos party bus was transporting fans home from Wallen’s first concert for his “One Thing At A Time” 2023 U.S. tour, according to WISN.

“It was like a movie,” Lou’s Limos co-owner and bus driver Mitch Landvick said of the incident. “All of a sudden I heard a gunshot and told everyone to get down.”

At least one bullet struck the bus, which was carrying 12 passengers at the time. It apparently busted through the window on one side of the bus, hit seats where passengers had just been sitting seconds prior, and went out the other side, WISN continued. Images of the damage were shared on Lou’s Limos official Facebook page.

“I think bottom line is we’re just extremely grateful to be home with our loved ones,” one of the passengers said of the incident. “We’re giving our loved ones extra squeezes and being more appreciated of the time we have with them.” (RELATED: Morgan Wallen Joined By Linkin Park On Billboard 200)

Milwaukee police are still looking for the shooters, but in the meantime, Lou’s Limos are rethinking their routes, WISN noted.

“He does Milwaukee runs all the time. We’ve never had issues. We will not go back at night. It’s not worth it,” co-owner Dawn Dionne told the outlet.
