Springfield, MO (KSDK) - A 32-year-old man is dead after a shooting involving two Greyhound passengers on their way to St. Louis. 

It happened around 5:30 P.M. Thursday at a bus terminal in Springfield, Missouri.  Passengers say the bus was on a lay-over after leaving Amarillo, Texas earlier that day. 

Witnesses told police a man walked up to another passenger and shot him. The victim's best friend, Patrick Beeman, identified the victim as Justin Hall of Mount Vernon, Ohio.

Police say it appears that the two men did not know each other.

Witnesses say it appears the 25-year-old suspect would have kept shooting, but his gun jammed.

Hall was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. 

Passengers were able to detain the 25-year-old suspect until police arrived.  He was arrested and remains in police custody.  Police are still investigating the motive. Charges have not yet been filed.

Beeman said he and his friend were on a two week road trip at the time of the incident.

Hall is survived by his fiancé and 3 daughters.
