School Bus Driver Shot, Child Taken Hostage

Source: Local WKRG Alabama News

Police are investigating a shooting aboard a school bus in Midland City - about 10 miles northwest of Dothan.

The Dale County Sheriff says that an unidentified man boarded a school bus, shot a bus driver several times and left the bus with a 6-year-old passenger Tuesday afternoon.

Police say the incident unfolded after the bus driver refused the suspect's demand to let the child off of the bus. Authorities say the man took the child to an area behind a nearby church and police were negotiating with him Tuesday evening.

The condition of the bus driver is unclear.

Police in Midland City were not immediately available to comment, and a call to the Dale City Sheriff's office was not answered Tuesday evening.
