The transit system said Fullard didn’t properly deescalate the situation and was not allowed to bring a gun to work.
The transit system says that the drive is now “off the job”.
The bus driver was doing his job when Omarri Tobias decided that he wanted special treatment. That is, he wanted to get off the bus between stops.
When the driver didn’t comply with his wishes, he pulled a gun.
At this point, it is a self-defense situation.
According to ABC News, Tobias “appeared” to point a gun at the driver. Hmm, I don’t care if you are pointing a gun near me or at me. You have drawn your gun as a threat to me. I’m going to shoot you until you are no longer a threat.
Both people were injured. The driver suffered a wound to the arm. The thug took at least one round to the abdomen.
Unfortunately, the driver will get the full legal treatment, as he continued to shoot as Tobias crawled and ran off the bus.
The Charlotte Area Transit CEO, Interim, says
We don’t want anyone possessing weapons on our vehicles. As always, the guy sitting in the office with security at the front door wants you to be disarmed. Hoping that if you give up your dignity, your money, or just comply, the evil thug won’t kill you just for laughs.
