Police have a man in custody suspected of throwing something at an MTA bus and breaking its window in East Harlem, causing a scare that a shooting had happened, the NYPD said.

The incident happened at Lexington Avenue and East 116th Street at about 6 p.m. on Wednesday and was originally reported as a shooting, police said.

The driver of a Chevy Impala threw a "blunt object" at an M101 bus that was carrying passengers, the NYPD and MTA said. The object broke a window on the bus but did not apparently strike anyone, police said.

The bus driver was taken to a hospital to be checked for trauma, the MTA said. The driver said that the car had cut him off.
