Bus passenger: ‘Going to pop everyone on this bus’

Passengers aboard a Route 30 bus fearing for their lives fled over snowbanks and fell to the ground as another passenger said he had a gun and was going to shoot everyone on board “including the babies.”

Passengers aboard a Route 30 bus fearing for their lives fled over snowbanks and fell to the ground as another passenger said he had a gun and was going to shoot everyone on board “including the babies.”

The frightening scene played out Tuesday morning on the bus that was driving along Cummins Highway in Mattapan.

Jauan Bristow, 27, was sitting in the back of the bus when he started to yell “bus driver if you don’t move I’m going to pop everyone on this bus,” the 51-year-old female driver told Transit Police. The 13-year veteran driver was “very upset and visibly shaking” when she talked to police after the incident.

Bristow then started to the front of the bus and reached into a bag and said “I’m getting this women (sic) first,” police said.

That’s when the driver opened the doors to allow passengers a way to escape.

As police arrived, they were running away from the bus, waving their arms and pointing toward it.

Bristow was held on $50,000 bail yesterday.
