    Police: Citizen shoots man attempting to hijack Metro bus after multiple wrecks

    HOUSTON – A wild crime spree ended in gunfire Tuesday when a citizen shot a suspect who was trying to hijack a Metro bus, Houston police said.
    According to HPD, it all began at about 5:30 p.m. when Henry Hankston III, 37, carjacked a person who was visiting friends at a residence in the 5200 block of Fair Green in southeast Houston.

    "Suspect had approached them, appeared to be under the influence of some kind of drugs, apparently came up and started assaulting the person and took his vehicle from him," said Sgt. Robert Torres, with HPD’s Homicide Division.
    He said Hankston did not have a weapon, but used objects that he had picked up on the street.
    "We were told that he was possibly on PCP, or his behavior was consistent with that of somebody who was on PCP—really hyper and extremely strong," Torres said.
    Hankston fled northbound on Martin Luther King. About a block away from the carjacking, he struck the first vehicle and continued driving, Torres said.

    "When he got to the intersection, he hit three other vehicles until he got to the point where his vehicle was disabled, got out of that vehicle and ran up to a bus that was turning through the intersection," Torres said.

    Torres said the suspect entered the bus and began assaulting the driver, in an apparent attempt to hijack the bus, until the driver of a car idling behind the bus noticed what was happening.

    "This person is a licensed concealed handgun carrier. He got out of the vehicle [and] went to the bus to try to intervene in the assault that was taking place," he said. "He did pull the suspect away from the driver and engaged in a physical confrontation with the suspect."

    As the two men struggled, the gun discharged and struck the suspect in the upper abdomen, Torres said.

    ten-4 - good on the concealed weapon to not be a sheep - if this starts happening more and more, maybe the wolves will realize that not everyone is a sheep and they'll be the ones looking over their shoulders for the guy who might be bringing the heat to the fight...

    The headline needs to be changed. The citizen did not shoot the guy. The bloodthirsty AK-47 revolver evidently went off on it's own will.
    Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

    We love you guys, too!!!!

    Houston is fucking wild wild west shit....We've got a guy who is our warrant officer who retired from HPD after 25 years...he tells some crazy ass stories about back in the day. For instance, it used to be fairly common to stop your patrol car to fill up with gas and someone do a drive-by on it. Apparently it didn't phase anyone.....
