Police say a woman accused of shooting a man Saturday in downtown Seattle after arguing with him on a bus had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

The woman, who was booked into jail on suspicion of assault, allegedly told police she had just exited a Route 27 Metro Transit bus at Third Avenue and Seneca Street when he called her a vulgar name and lunged at her. She then shot him in the upper-right chest, Seattle police said. She also said he spat at her, police say.

He was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where he underwent surgery. An update on his condition was not available Sunday
