MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Police arrested the man suspected in the New Year's Eve party bus shooting.

Robert Sanders, 32, is charged with 25 counts of criminally attempted first-degree murder.

"All I was thinking about was get down," said one of the people on the bus who did not want to be identified. "I know the sound of gunshots mean get down."

Investigators say it all started when a group of people at Ice Bar and Grill on Hacks Cross got into an argument with people on the party bus. Five people on the bus went to the hospital. Two of them were in critical condition.

Police released new information saying that after the bus and its passengers left the scene, it was corralled by a Nissan Maxima and a Chevy Tahoe.

The driver of the Tahoe fired several shots into the bus. Investigators believe Sanders was the shooter.
