Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies stopped a Metro bus on a street south of downtown Los Angeles Wednesday morning after a report of a "disturbance" aboard the bus.

Aerial video showed passengers exiting the bus one-by-one with their hands above their heads and walking backward toward deputies who searched them for weapons. Deputies responded after passengers reported seeing another passenger with a gun.
