Alabama School Bus Driver Fatally Shot
An unidentified man boarded a school bus, shot the driver several times, then escaped with a 6-year-old passenger, prompting an hourslong standoff with police that remained unresolved early Wednesday.
The Dale County Sheriff told WBMA-TV (http://bit.ly/WthpQh ) that the man shot the driver in Midland City on Tuesday after he refused to let the child off the bus. The driver later died of his wounds. His identity wasn’t released.
The shooter took the child to an area behind a nearby church, and police were negotiating with him, authorities said.
