Columbus Police say the man accused of shooting a woman in the eye when he sprayed a COTA bus with several rounds has turned himself in.

Police say Anthony Saunders III turned himself in last night and remains in the Franklin County Jail on a charge of felonious assault.

Police have not said what led up to the shooting.

His arrest comes after 39-year-old Amy Develvis was struck in the head by a stray bullet while riding a city bus near downtown April 16. She is recovering at home.

Last week, a 22-year-old man was charged with tampering with evidence in the case.

Saunders will be arraigned Wednesday. Court records did not indicate if he had an attorney.
